The Old Kitchen

When we say ‘old’ at Thrumpton, it could be anything from 1560 – that’s when the first manor-house was built here – up to Victorian times, when the Hall got its own brewery, a private lake and a massive wine-cellar running under the whole length of the Rose Garden’s stone terrace. The Old Kitchen is a fascinating mixture of both …

Our Thrumpton Family

When you hold an event at Thrumpton Hall, you aren’t just hiring a venue. You are being welcomed by the Seymour family into their beautiful 17th century home, full of their heirlooms, keepsakes and photographs that you will see decorating the hall. You socialise and network in their formal family gardens, where they spent their childhood playing and learning about wildlife. …

Simkins, our furry resident

If you have visited Thrumpton Hall, then you are sure to have met our permanent resident Simkins the cat. Simkins arrived as a kitten eight years ago. He came from a pet shop in Clifton and it was love at first sight. The Thrumpton Family explained to him on that day that he was to be Miranda’s mother’s cat and …

The Priest’s Walk

When our guests walk down to the beautiful marquee overlooking the lake, they’re walking along a very historic path. Over four hundred years ago, Thrumpton belonged to a Roman Catholic family called Powdrill. Back then, it was considered a crime to be a Catholic and the Powdrills had to follow their faith in secret. That meant that they had a …

My Favorite Room – Written by Miranda Seymour

  We do lots of different kinds of events at Thrumpton. The one I’m most directly involved in is taking tours around the house because – well, because I take the tours around myself. My favorite part of the tour is when we get everybody gathered in the beautiful, golden-walled library at the start while I tell our guests a …

The Swans

Every May, we have the same moment of anxiety. Where have our beautiful swans gone? Will they come back? A pair of swans – they mate for life, as a very good example to our lovely wedding-couples! – have been visiting Thrumpton Hall each year for about twenty years. Living out beside the lake, right below the windows of the …

The I do’s of Spring 2017

We have been witness to many celebrations on our grounds. Some weddings are eccentric, some are intimate and some are in between, but they’re all special and momentous in their own right.  Here at Thrumpton Hall we still get butterflies when we see an event come to life. Most of our couples save the date two years in advance and have often been planning their …

Growing up at Thrumpton Hall

Part of the fun for me about the lovely events that we host here is when I get asked about how it used to be? The answer is: not that different! I’ve loved the house I was born in through all my life. Our main aim has been to keep it feeling like a family house, but one we share. …

The Sky Room

As Summer 2017 fast approached, here at Thrumpton Hall we fancied a change. We would like to welcome you to our newest suite The Sky Room. After much deliberation we decided to create a modern boudoir inspired by our very own Miranda Seymour and her time by the coast.  The Sky Room is at the attic of the house, in the …
