Macdonald Kilhey Court

Macdonald Kilhey Court

There aren’t many venues in the North West that boast wonderful rural surroundings, plush interiors AND first-rate facilities, but Macdonald Kilhey Court, just 4 miles from Wigan certainly can. The beautiful landscaped grounds make it a hot spot for dreamy weddings, and the self-contained all-modern events centre is a huge success for business meetings and events for up to 300 delegates. Book this re-vamped country manor for awards ceremonies, exhibitions conferences, product launches, glittering banquets, drinks receptions, training days, team building activities and parties.

There are 9 flexible meeting and event spaces; most have copious natural light and views over the gardens, all very inspiring. The biggest room is the Lakeside Suite, with that top capacity of 300 (theatre style), and doors that open onto a private terrace. Seating 150 in theatre style, the Masefield and Dryden Suites are part of the Lakeside Suite and both have a foyer, private bar and access onto the garden.

In the original Victorian manor house, the Tennyson Suite also holds up to 150 guests, or when combined with the adjacent Wordsworth Suite, 200; it has a private bar and lounge area. The Wordsworth Suite alone accommodates 50 guests and is often used as breakout space to main events held in the Tennyson. The Victorian Garden Suite opens onto the terrace and seats 50 in theatre style or 20 in boardroom layout; this room is often used in conjunction with the adjoining Kilhey’s Nightclub for events for up to 150 people. On the first floor of the house is the Betjeman Suite, which can be used for breakouts or for confabs for up to 12 executives.

The well-polished events team will work hard to make sure all goes smoothly; you’ll have complimentary wifi, up-to-the-minute audio-visual equipment, and even the services of the resident DJ and pianist. Those gorgeous 10-acre grounds are ripe for team building days, with ice-breaking activities like ‘It’s A Knockout’ tournaments, giant football, and clay pigeon shooting.

There are 62 classically styled guest bedrooms, an on-site spa and wellbeing club, restaurant and bar. Macdonald Kilhey Court is easily accessed from the M6 and M61 plus has free on-site parking. Liverpool and Manchester are under an hour away, Wigan North Western railway station is just 10 minutes distant and Manchester Airport is can be reached in about 40 minutes.
