Experience our home

Both the house and grounds make an ideal setting for a variety of occasions and are available for event or location hire.

The historic house of Northcourt and its extensive gardens make an attractive setting for a wide variety of functions, retreats, photoshoots, events, workshops, and courses.

Over the years, Northcourt has served as a photo shoot location for big brands like Clarks Shoes and Tesco, as well as smaller brands like Mahout Lifestyle and Chatham Marine. The property has also been a popular choice for company retreats, workshops, and away-stays, offering a welcome escape from the office and great team-building opportunities. The house boasts flexible rooms and magnificent gardens, making it ideal for various activities such as boot-camps, yoga and pilates retreats, painting, writing, and photography workshops, as well as garden tours. Check out this link for a list of upcoming retreats.

The property and its surroundings are perfect for hosting wedding receptions and other large celebrations, where family and friends can stay together in the house. The function room can accommodate up to 60 guests, while a marquee in the garden can hold up to 120 people, making it an ideal location for your dream celebration. Please note due to our quiet village setting, excessively loud and late parties are not permitted.

The Harrison family lives within the grounds and will be on hand to welcome you to the property. We will provide a quick induction and, if required, advice on places to visit or tips to make the most of your stay on the Island. If you have any questions or issues during your stay, we are available to assist you.

– Cooked or continental breakfast. Depending on numbers this can be served in the East Wing dining room.
