How important is it to choose a local private functions venue?
When you are planning a hold a special event of some kind such as a birthday party, graduation party or baby shower, but find that you are unable to accommodate all of the expected guests in your home, you will need to consider hiring a separate private functions venue.
There are many such venues out there, and amid all of the other obvious factors – such as whether the suite you are considering has enough space, and what other amenities are immediately available – you might wonder just how important it is for your chosen venue to be based nearby.
‘Local’ can be a very relative term...
Of course, there is a big issue with the term ‘local’ – just how local is ‘local’? If you are a London resident, for example, you might initially intend to hire somewhere in the city. However, it may be difficult for some of your guests to get to your chosen venue in time, and the setting may not lend itself to a more low-key, intimate or relaxing event.
This is where our own private functions venue in Hertfordshire truly comes into its own. The country house of Shendish Manor in Apsley has no shortage of history, boasting impressive Victorian architecture that is sure to delight your guests. Our suites, too, are spacious and well-equipped, and we are surrounded by 160 acres of breathtaking Hertfordshire parkland and gardens.
You can probably begin to appreciate why so many people – even based far afield from Shendish Manor – choose our venue in this enchantingly green, rural and tranquil part of England. We are in close proximity to all manner of attractions that you and your guests may wish to visit while here, such as Berkhamsted Castle and Hatfield House, and our comfortable and stylish rooms even give your guests the perfect place to stay overnight, should they wish to do so.
Above all else, though, we are so much easier to reach than you might imagine us to be! We are only 30 minutes away by train from Central London, for example, and any of your guests who are visiting from Watford or Hemel Hempstead will be less than 10 minutes away by car.
