The Coach House
A recent addition to Elmore Court, the Coach House was built to accommodate small groups of guests (groomsmen, bridesmaids or suppliers) the evening before your big day, and so that they can wake up on site. Separate to the main house, it has its own driveway so it won't interfere with the main event. It comes equipped with a sitting room with a double sofa-bed and two double bedrooms combined with a cottage kitchen.
Elmore’s kitchen team are super-skilled and give you the flexibility you need for your special day. They work closely with local suppliers and with the Estate's own gardeners to ensure the ingredients are as fresh and delicious as possible. There is a well-stocked cellar if you choose a drink package, or you can bring your own.
