Looking for an extraordinary venue to hold your event or course?
Facilities and Room Rental
There is a tangible feeling of peace and serenity when you enter Luisne and our visitors particularly like to spend time in the over 200 year-old walled garden. In keeping with our beautiful surroundings, we like to create an atmosphere of welcome and calm at Luisne to really benefit all who come to really benefit from their time out. We were delighted to host our first wedding at Luisne in August 2013! The bride and groom were delighted with their choice of venue and the photographs reflect the uniqueness of the day. At Luisne, we have several rooms available for rental by local tutors, therapists, facilitators and teachers. Depending on the nature of the course, we can advise on which room is most suited to your needs. Dimensions for each room can be found on the Rooms Page. The location of Luisne, just off the N11 and surrounded by 40 acres of undeveloped land, makes it an ideal venue to hold your event or retreat. The house has four main rooms that can be rented out, along with use of a large kitchen (pre-arranged) and ample toilet facilities. The kitchen is also rented for some courses. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the heritage house, the building does not currently have wheelchair access. At Luisne, we are delighted to facilitate courses and events that uphold our vision and values.

The Walled Garden
A beautiful oasis, the walled garden is very much laid out as it was for the original occupants of Luisne, two hundred years ago! The walled garden is available to hire for an event, such as a wedding, communion party or other celebration. The many shrubs and trees provide a beautiful backdrop for those all important photographs to capture your day. The walled garden can be accessed independently of the Main House, giving you independence and freedom to run your event but respect must be shown for the fact that the house provides living quarters for some of the Luisne team and also that courses may be in session.
This special space is available for Meditation, Mindfulness, T’ai Chi or Yoga. This unique space could be described as sacred because it is used only for these activities.
