Parties, Birthdays and Events

The perfect birthday venue whatever your age.
From milestone occasions such as a 60th, 40th or 21st, to any other number, every birthday is special to us at Sopwell House. From an intimate dinner for two, a special birthday overnight stay, spa day with the girls or afternoon tea in our sumptuous cocktail lounge, there is something to suite all tastes and mark those special occasions. Where better to celebrate than amongst the tranquil Hertfordshire countryside, with extensive on-site car parking and a dedicated events entrance.

Our choice of flexible function suites can cater for large birthday celebrations for up to 300 with dance floor and stage including a dedicated foyer with two bars, prefect for a pre-dinner drinks reception. For smaller celebrations our function suites such as the Victoria can accommodate up to 120, the Mountbatten can accommodate up to 80, or for very intimate celebrations the Verulam can accommodate 10.

Choose from a range of menus, from simple but delicious options to full 5 course banquets, or perhaps create your own, and when you've decided, rest assured on the day all will be fresh, delicious and delivered with impeccable service. To complement your food we can supply quality wine from around the world or perhaps you have something specific in mind, just let us know. We can also arrange for the all important birthday cake to be served after dinner. As for party themes, let your imagination run wild and leave the organisation to us - we will create a party that you, your family and your friends will remember forever.

Special dates like your wedding anniversary deserve special celebrations and where better to host this celebration than our luxurious Georgian country house retreat? Whether you're celebrating as a couple or inviting family and friends for a larger party, we can create the perfect occasion for you. Perhaps you fancy an intimate meal in our fine dining restaurant, or a relaxing overnight stay in one of our sumptuous suites?

Our special Anniversary package combines both with a night in a stunning Executive Suite with balcony, champagne, flowers and chocolates in your room, as well as a spa treatment each, all priced from just £499 per couple.

To mark anniversary milestones such as Silver, Gold or Diamond, a party is the ideal celebration, and we can host in one of our flexible function suites, accommodating up to 500 guests. Perhaps you want to decorate according to the traditional items associated with your anniversary, or want to leave it down to us, our team of experienced planners will work with you to ensure that your celebration is a huge success. We can help recreate your wedding menu, source a particular wine that you drank on your wedding day, anything to make your celebration extra special.
