Coronavirus (covid-19) update
Focusing on the health and wellbeing of our staff and customers continues to be our priority. In line with national guidance and government recommendations in March, we took the difficult decision to close Beaumanor Hall until further notice.
In line with the latest government guidance at https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus we would like to outline our current position regarding key areas of our business:
Weddings, celebrations and corporate events
Weddings, celebrations and corporate events are not taking place at Beaumanor Hall at this time. Existing bookings up until 31 July 2020 have been rearranged or refunded where possible . On 11 May 2020, Government announced they would be exploring the possibility of larger group gatherings during stage two (after 1 June) of the recovery plan. Stage two is currently being discussed by Government and will only be considered if the correct conditions are met. We continue to monitor updates and will post all relevant information here.
We are pleased to say that while we remain closed, our core team continues to work from home and are accepting new enquiries and provisional bookings for weddings, private or corporate events being planned for 2021 and 2022.
Please call 01509 890119 or email Beaumanor.email@example.com if you have an enquiry for our venue.
All events until 31 July 2020 have been cancelled and customers have now been contacted regarding a refund or voucher. We will continue to review those events scheduled beyond the end of July in line with government guidance.
Beaumanor outdoors – residentials and holiday clubs
Due to a large number of year groups not returning to school this term, we will not be facilitating our residentials and holiday clubs until September 2020 at the earliest. We hope that as lockdown eases, we are able to continue to review the situation to see what we can deliver practically and safely. Any existing bookings have been moved where possible, but we’re encouraging schools to consider planning ahead for 2021/2022.
All dates listed above are an indication and are subject to change in line with the latest Government guidance. We continue to navigate our way through these challenging times and look forward to seeing you all again soon.
Stay safe and please continue to check for the latest updates on our website.

Beaumanor Hall has dedicated parking for blue badge holders outside the Main Hall and outside a number of our cabins for our residential groups.
The main entrance to Beaumanor Hall can be accessed by a lift that is built into the steps. Ramp access is provided whenever the lift is unavailable for any reason. There is a communication system so you can contact staff when you arrive to request assistance in using either the lift or the ramp. Entrance to all outdoor learning & residential buildings is at ground level.
Our dining facilities are on the ground floor of the main hall and accessed via a lift/ramp if required. For our residential groups with additional needs, we offer private dining on request.
We have disabled facilities in the Hall, on the ground floor. The Outdoor Learning Centre has facilities in the amenities building as well as in our specially adapted accommodation block – which also has showering facilities. We have a hoist available for our residential groups on request.
If you are organising a large group booking and members of your party need to use the lift system into the main Hall, we can put up a temporary ramp to speed up access. For our outdoor learning and residential groups our amenities block has ramp access and our ‘Gage Cabin’ is adapted for groups with additional needs. Groups using the standing camp will be directed to the amenities block for most of their needs.
Activities – Advanced booking required
Many of our activities are accessible for people with additional needs. We do not have a lift for our abseil and zip wire but may be able to accommodate people with severe physical impairments in other ways. Many of our activities are accessible and if not adaptable and we have many regular and returning groups with additional physical, sensory and learning needs. We have a small number of staff with experience of Makaton for our younger guests.
The grounds at the back of the Hall can be accessed by a pathway from the side of the building.
Most of the gardens can be explored by wheelchair along a mixture of grass and gravel paths. We provide a series of ramps and graded slopes to provide access to the various levels in the gardens. It may be difficult on the gravel, grass and ramps for some users depending on the weather conditions please be aware that the distances to get around the garden in a wheelchair are longer due to the location of the ramps.
Assistance dogs are welcome in the Hall and Gardens. We would be happy to discuss your requirements if you are staying with us.
The team at Beaumanor Hall & Park are always available to help you plan your visit. Please call us on 01509 890119 to ensure you have the access support you need.
