One of the UK's most historic venues is giving Christmas party-goers the chance to celebrate the festive season with a bespoke celebration - with special treats for early bird bookers.

Throughout the festive season, Knebworth House is offering exclusive hire of its oak-framed Cobbold Barn to groups of friends, families and work colleagues looking to celebrate in style.

And anyone who makes their booking in October will receive a complimentary DJ for their event and a choice of free arrival drinks, complimentary drinks vouchers for their guests or cheese and port at the end of their meal, courtesy of Knebworth.

The Cobbold Christmas package includes hire of the barn – in the grounds of Knebworth House – and a three-course meal starting with herbed ham hock terrine or red lentil pâté.

This will be followed by pan fried breast of chicken with Hasselback potato and spiced red cabbage with apricots or baked beef tomato stuffed with couscous, followed by orange crème brûlée with lemon shortbread and coffee.

“Knebworth is a spectacular setting at the best of times but at Christmas it really does look fantastic and the Cobbold Barn is the perfect venue for a party,” said Katy Doherty, sales and marketing manager at Knebworth House.

“We hope our October offer will encourage anyone who hasn’t visited us to come along and see what makes a Cobbold Christmas so special.”

Each Thursday, Friday and Saturday in December, Knebworth is also hosting a series of Party Nights in a star-clothed marquee, featuring disco music through the decades, a three-course meal and a late bar.

Families can also enjoy Sunday lunch with Santa on December 4, December 11 and December 18.

Arrival is from midday and the bar will be open for cash purchase drinks.

The two-course lunch will be served at 12.30pm.

Father Christmas will arrive following dessert with a gift for every child.

The price for adults is £25 per person, and children aged up to 13 years of age £12.

Pre-booking essential. Please email with details of any vegetarians or special dietary needs for your party.
