Crumplebury has onsite accommodation, flexible event spaces, a farm-to-table restaurant and views of the countryside.

Set in a 1,500-acre private family estate in the Herefordshire countryside, Crumplebury is brand new corporate events venue.

After a year-long construction, owners Joe and Keeley Evans held a launch party on Saturday 9 November, welcoming guests into the Atrium hall where the five-metre wooden doors opened to reveal the Grand Hall, which seats 200.

The Grand Hall is Crumplebury’s largest event space, ideal for a formal banquet or product launch.

Fine dining farm-to-table food is served by the chefs of Green Cow Kitchens, a restaurant that has been incorporated into Crumplebury.

Joe Evans said: "Crumplebury’s ethos is that every special occasion deserves to be memorable and unique, so the venue’s spaces have been carefully planned to accommodate different needs."

Other rooms include the ‘Snug’, featuring a glass-topped wine cellar; the ‘Drinking Trough’ bar, with fire-pits on its sunken terrace; the upstairs ‘Art Gallery’ which has natural light and countryside views; and the restaurant.

Crumplebury, which is the name of the old farm buildings on Herefordshire’s Whitbourne Estate, also offers 11 en-suite bedrooms and a two-bed self-catered cottage.

Keeley Evans said: "Crumplebury aims to echo and compliment the Herefordshire countryside. With its vibrant and modern aesthetic, it can be a calm retreat from the pressures of professional life or an inspiring place for a dynamic business meeting.

"Wherever possible, we have used natural materials to echo the peaceful Herefordshire countryside that surrounds us. Crumplebury doesn’t aim to compete with nature, rather it aims to complement it."

Work has been done to protect the existing trees and hedgerows around Crumplebury, and a large wild-flower meadow has been planted to attract bees and butterflies.
