Waterperry House is a large country house, set in 83 acres of its own grounds, surrounded by farmland, about 7 miles east of Oxford. It is used extensively as residential centre for retreats.
It sits on the same site as Waterperry Gardens - a substantial and very well known horticultural centre, open to the public seven days a week with a quality garden centre, gift shop, gallery, museum and tea rooms. The beautiful ornamental gardens cover some eight and a half acres, and there is an open air theatre for use in the summer months.
ROOMS AND SPACE
The Georgian house, with medieval origins, has a light and airy atrium space with refreshments area, a large ballroom, library, dining room and meeting rooms of various sizes all with high ceilings, open fire places and wonderful views over manicured lawns and ornamental gardens.
A special feature of the house is a renovated hall area which includes a large fresco, painted in the traditional fresco way. Taking six years to complete, and covering three storeys, it depicts scenes taken from Advaita philosophy.
ABOUT THE LOCATION
Waterperry is just 7.5 miles from Oxford city centre, 50 miles from London, and 62 miles from Birmingham. It's therefore perfectly located for events with attendees coming from a variety of locations, while still feeling like it is a million miles away from a big city.
