THICKET PRIORY: THE ULTIMATE HOUSE FOR HIRE

Built by Edward Blore, most notable for his completion of John Nash’s design of Buckingham Palace, Grade II Victorian masterpiece Thicket Priory has been painstakingly restored to create one of the UK’s finest private houses for hire. Until recently sealed off from the outside world and lived in by a silent order of nuns, today this secret oasis of tranquillity boasts 35 bedrooms, a ballroom capable of seating up to 250, beautifully landscaped gardens, a private lake and a boathouse. Creating an unparalleled setting for weddings, private parties and corporate events, Thicket Priory will officially launch this spring.
