The Manor House in Sedgefield, County Durham is unique by anyone’s measure and from the moment you climb the steps and walk through the grand front door of this fantastic period building your spirits are lifted and you know you are in a special place. The special interior of this 1707 building emanates timelessness.

Our stunning reception hall provides the perfect place to meet and greet your guests and enjoy a relaxing drink. It is spacious enough for music or food service. The reception leads into the Old Court Room which extends for the depth of the building and has two feature stone fire places and views out to the village green. The Old Court Room provides a flexible space for parties, dinners or weddings and can accommodate up to 60 people.

The Manor House 1707 is the perfect venue to host anyones 'Special Day' with its stunning Georgian architecture through to the beautiful backdrop that is Sedgefield. A wedding is one of the most important days in anyones life and here at Manor House we want to make it that day that always brings a smile to your face for a lifetime. 

On the first floor, beyond the grand staircase and elegant Venetian window we have an intimate and relaxed room which also overlooks the village green to the front.

We offer kitchen facilities and crockery with glasses for preparing tea, coffee and drinks. There is space to bring in caterers for food service at events. Sedgefield has a number of quality local catering suppliers.

The reception hall, The Old Court Room and our first floor room are available for half day, full day, evening or weekend hire.

So if you're based in the north-east; why not consider Manor House for your next private function.

"“The Manor House is an excellent base for a business like mine. As well as being a beautiful building, the actual facilities offer everything that I need to be able to run a 21st Century PR consultancy. Along with the on-site provision of essentials like superfast fibre optic broadband and access to good storage and meeting room capacity, the Manor House is within very short walking distance of amenities in Sedgefield such as cafes and a post office. Meanwhile, the main arterial roads in the North East are only minutes away, which is handy not only for me, but also for any visitors who I meet here.”"

"Just want to say a huge thank you for everyone’s help at the Manor House. The jewelry event was a great success and everyone commented on how beautiful the room and building was. Most of the attendees were local and said they haven’t even known about the building. I will defiantly be interested in having further events in the future."

"I’d like to say on behalf of all at SDT thank you for the use of the Old Court Room for our open evening this year.
We had a very successful meeting with much lively discussions afterwards. I am quite sure the surroundings contributed much to the evening; when people are comfortable they perhaps are more inclined to join in the talk and to stay until a natural conclusion. As well as a big thank you can you please specifically thank Steph who was very helpful and unruffled by our questions and requests. Without her we wouldn’t have got started promptly, and perhaps not at all! "

"We had a brilliant time at the book launch of The Magic Mobile in September. Couldn’t have wished for a better venue. Everybody was very impressed with the Manor House and we were very grateful for the help and support we received from your staff. The catering equipment provided was just right – glasses, cups, cloths etc – and the large tables at either end of the Court Room were perfect for the buffet and the book display. Washing up is a bit difficult, as both the sink and dishwasher downstairs are small; carrying dishes up all those stairs is not easy either!
Access via the lovely garden and inviting entrance area certainly add to the experience, while the rear door entrance and car parking proved very useful to visitors from beyond Sedgefield. I will certainly recommend the Manor House to other people and would love to be able to use your excellent facilities again. Good luck with future events."
