"Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999."
If you are looking for a spectacular location for your wedding, it doesn't get much better than Applecross. White sand beaches, impressive mountains, the gentle waters of the sound, and the beauty of a country estate. Hartfield House is a former hunting lodge offering good, basic accommodation for up to 50 guests in private, double, twin and triple rooms. Guests would have exclusive use of the building and grounds which includes a large function room (hall), smaller function room, sitting areas, dining hall and gardens.
Venue for reception
Our function hall is large enough to seat 100 people at round tables. There is a small stage, and large double doors that open onto the extensive gardens. We hire the hall as it stands. You then have the freedom to decorate and use for your dream wedding.
Space in the grounds for a marquee/tipi
We have large grounds surrounding Hartfield House. When you book the function hall and accommodation, you have use of the grounds too, which means you can put up a marquee or tipi, bell tent or whatever takes your fancy for no extra cost.
Accommodation for your guests
We have capacity for up to 50 guests in both the hostel and the bunkhouse. This includes exclusive use of the large lounge, kitchen/dining room, showers/toilet block, kit store, and a large reception room, as well as the grounds.
Prices for hire of the hall and exclusive use of the Hartfield House hostel complex start from £1,200 per night (+ £250 one-off charge for the hall). This works out at £24 per person per night if the whole complex is used by guests. Smaller wedding parties can book the main house or the Bunkhouse individually for a negotiated rate.
