At Stubton Hall, you won’t find a corporate reception, annoying little signs telling you what to do or the dreaded trouser press.
When we first walked up the drive, Stubton looked sad and forlorn. The shutters were closed, the park was overgrown and, even worse, dotted around the elegant, old house were the most incongruous 1950s dormitories. Kent went ballistic! Wouldn’t it be great to buy this place, knock down those horrible eyesores and make the Hall sparkle again?
The things we love about Stubton – its unspoilt location in the countryside away from noisy roads, its lovely park and gardens and its elegant rooms – are the very things that make it the perfect place for swanky house parties and smart nuptials - and maybe the occasional meeting with jackets and ties off. We love the feeling of a grand, old English country house where you can sink into a comfy sofa by a roaring fire and are treated like guest in a home.
What you will find at Stubton is a warm welcome, discreet staff, fine wines and good food. We’ve created a house that is a convenient mix of old and new – beautiful antiques and paintings combined with modern touches such as air conditioning, wifi access, decent showers and extremely comfortable beds.
And the best part of all… if you book an event at Stubton Hall, you will have the whole place to yourselves: 22 bedrooms, 4 reception rooms with adjoining terraces, an orangery that seats 200 people and 24 acres of enchanting park and gardens.
