Special events

Highwic offers many different options for special occasions. Our vast sweeping tennis lawn can accommodate a marquee for up to 150 while our croquet lawn can be used as space for guests to play lawn games or relax on picnic rugs. 

Meanwhile, our two indoor spaces are suitable for 90 guests standing or 50 seated for a meal. You’re welcome to use spaces in conjunction with each other to make the most of our house and grounds. Whether you need a space for a special birthday, wedding anniversary celebrations or a family reunion, Highwic has the space and facilities you need.
