Manor House 1707

Testimonials

"Lovely, nice spot, nice village, lovely people"
BBC production team (BBC Documentary BB2 Brexit documentary)
"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."

"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..."

"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!"
Rodger Clubley - Sedgefield Development Trust Open Evening held on 23rd November 2015
"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."

"A very big thank you to Jo, Marie and the rest of the team at the Manor House.
We both had a fantastic day and evening for our wedding on Sept 17th 2016. The food, both wedding breakfast and evening hog roast was delicious and the venue looked really amazing. Everything went without a hitch. We would both like to thank everyone very much for making it such a special day. Neil & Jenni Revell x"

"We’ve been a tenant in The Manor House for 7 years.  Location is great, right in the centre of Sedgefield with a number of handy cafes and shops on the doorstep.  The private car park at the rear of the building is also a very useful bonus. The building itself is full of character and original features but it still manages to cater very well for modern businesses with fibre broadband in the building and serviced meeting rooms."
Jane Skilbeck, Finance and Business Manager, Parsons Containers Ltd
"We’ve been based at The Manor House since August 2018 and find it a great place to work from. The facilities including the meetings rooms, restroom and coffee machine are fantastic, and all of the people from the other organisations based within the building are really friendly. Parking is excellent and the office space is right near the local shops and facilities."
Jane Bellis, AAP Co-ordinator, East Durham Rural Corridor Area Action Partnership
"Highly recommended.  This venue have provided us with the meeting space and flexibility we needed, on more than one occasion.  The team respond swiftly and Ean and his team could not be more helpful; we will certainly use them again, should the need arise."
