At the heart of Wiston Lodge is the house itself – a beautiful old Victorian hunting lodge built in the 1850s for the Ferguson Family. The house has 48 bed spaces in a mixture of family and dorm-style rooms, as well as 5 group spaces of varying sizes and facilities. In 2015 we installed a new biomass heating system, which along with the open fires and wood burning stove mean the lodge is warm and cosy even in winter.

Group Spaces

The main lodge has 5 group rooms which can be hired individually. Residential groups of 30+ participants will have use of 2 group spaces complimentary, groups of 45+ participants will get up to 4 group rooms they require complimentary. All rooms can be set up for your groups requirements, whether it be for training, or a conference/meeting, chilling out, or even a ceilidh or party. See below for more details on each group room.
