Family and Friends
Do you have a milestone birthday coming up and want to celebrate with ALL the family, however large it has become over the years?
Mill End is the perfect Party House for your family
We can seat up to 40 over two long or four small tables for dinner, and have plenty of high chairs and cots. We can provide in house catering and party table dressing – http://www.bordellobanquets.co.uk/dining/
We have lots of things to do for small children – dolls house, rocking horse, toys, books, sand-pit, play area, submerged trampoline, hot tub, DVD collection, or we can arrange qualified baby-sitters for you….Please do look after the wooden toys and make sure they aren’t left out in the rain. Thanks.
We have lots of things for young adults and teenagers to do – hot tub, popcorn maker, biscuit press, pool table, TV and DVDs…..
And the Forest of Dean is perfect for all the family! Visit Beechenhurst, Cannop Ponds or Mallards Pike or do the Go-Ape High wire trail.
dining and partying
We have some very well equipped kitchens for foodies. And we are perfect for ‘come dine with me’ family fun…or mad hatter's tea parties.
We have a detached cottage if the more senior members of your party want to join in the celebrations but have somewhere a bit quieter to retire to when it all gets too much!
And if you would like to have more of a grown up party with DJs and a bar, and more guests than the house can legally hold as a self-catering holiday house, then you can hire The Brewery Tap, a stone’s throw from the house, which even has a covered outdoor BBQ area.
children’s entertainment and safety
If the children are happy, then the grown-ups are too we reckon! There is a hall full of hand held musical instruments. There is an easy grab first aid kit in the family bathroom in the Lower Malt House, along with the potty, trainer set and step set. And there are wooden stair gates at the top and bottom of the stairs in the malt house. The Lower Malt House has two baskets of IKEA picnic sets in a wooden trunk, for small children to clatter around with as they sit on the floor or to use outside for BBQs and al-fresco eating.
If you are coming in the autumn and the weather s likely to be inclement, why not hire the fresh pasta making kit from Bordello Banquets?
If you have a summer visit planned why not hire the pizza oven and have fun making pizzas with the ids and grand kids?
Mad Hatter's Tea
This can be served as a mid-day lunch with finger canapes or as a tea time treat with candies, cakes and fresh fruit.
Always a favourite with ALL generations - make your own chocolate lollipops, truffles and ganache filled chocolates.
What past Families have said
This is what our last really Big Bank Holiday group of friends and family said –
“The accommodation was superb and the facilities amazing”
"Approx 20 of us stayed there from toddlers to the grand-parents. The accommodation was superb and the facilities amazing. A kitchen downstairs and a bigger one upstairs. The hot tub was great as was the sauna. The boys/ men loved the pool table too. Would not hesitate to recommend and would go back. Pizza, Chinese and kebab take outs just round the corner with a small supermarket. Nice views all round."
