The Meadow Suite provides the perfect ambiance for those memorable occasions. With its unique versatile room layout the Meadow Suite suite has two levels, the upper level seating 100 guests for dinning allowing the lower lever to be the perfect stage for evening entertainment or for additional dining. The floor to ceiling doors open onto our exclusive decking area, which overlooks the meadow leading down to the lake. 

A fully equipped and licensed bar is available within the Meadow Suite meaning guests do not need to go far for the all-important refreshments.
