Residential Lettings

During the School Holidays, residential lettings are possible. With a range of accommodation options encompassing dormitory style bedrooms, single rooms and en-suite rooms, a variety of facilities including sports facilities, art, music and drama spaces and plenty of meeting rooms, Cobham Hall is ideal for residential camps and trips for children and adults. Linen and in-house catering are provided and the estate can accommodate more than 180 people.

Conferences and Functions

We have large and small rooms that can be used to accommodate a variety of group sizes and conference needs from training courses to networking meetings. The grounds provide suitable backdrops for photography and filming. We will throw in the spectacular views for free.

We offer a choice of rooms, each with its own unique style and atmosphere. The Gilt Hall is renowned for its elaborately gilded ceiling and wall decorations and provides a stunning location for large functions, conferences and exhibitions. The room is also available to hire for recordings with Duet Media, making use of the stunning Steinway Grand Piano.

The Vestibule is fronted by a sweep-round drive and formal garden, and originally served as the Hall’s principal entrance until 1802. Decorated by James Wyatt in the 1770s in the Adam style, it features classical Greek friezes in pastel colours. The room is perfect for formal meetings, relaxed cocktail events and small seated functions.

The Library was designed by George Repton in 1871 to house the 4th Earl’s fine collection of books and provides a unique, formal setting for business meetings and intimate functions.

Clifton Common Room was used as a dining room by the last Earl of Darnley. The room faces south with a small outside balcony and spectacular views of South Lawn. The room is ideal for drinks receptions, breakfast meetings and presentations.


Film and Television

Cobham Hall has been used as a setting for a number of film, television and advertising companies. We became Abbey Mount School for the 2008 film ‘Wild Child’, in which many staff and students were involved as extras. Andrew Davies’ acclaimed adaptation of the Dickens novel Bleak House was also filmed here as was a scene from the Frankie Muniz film Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London. A composite portrait of Gillian Anderson and Anna Maxwell-Martin as Lady Deadlock is an interesting talking point on guided tours. More recently, the building became the Foundling Hospital for an adaptation of ‘Hetty Feather’.
