Amber Lakes is a tranquil landscape of 450 acres, just 40 minutes from London, and offers the perfect backdrop to any event.
Set between two picturesque lakes, the Lodge offers a gorgeous unique venue where the event possibilities are endless. We were really excited to pay a site visit to Amber Lakes as we had a good feeling about it and we’re delighted that it more than lived up to our expectations.
When you arrive, the lakes are hidden from view but as the drive sweeps round, the venue and site reveals itself as a hidden oasis of calm. This is a venue where you will leave your worries behind and probably never want to leave. Certainly London seems miles away, (though it only takes 40 minutes from Waterloo).
A view to kill for
There’s a distinct whiff of glamour about Amber Lakes which isn’t surprising when you discover that A View To A Kill was filmed here (remember the bit when James Bond’s Silver Rolls Royce gets lost to the lake?). This luxury feeling continues into the spacious Lodge which is made from cedar and oak with expansive windows framing the breath taking views. We loved the statement antler chandelier and chairs along with the soft furnishings including cowhide chairs and leather armchairs along the 10m marble topped bar, perfect for any soirée. The Lodge can host up to 120 guests for a seated dinner and 200 for a standing reception however the capacity of the site allows for up to 500 guests for a summer event.
Soak up the sunshine
The venue is perfect for a range of high end events and the team are open to working with you to make your vision come to life. We can picture some fabulous summer parties here – think marquees on the lawn, wandering entertainment, funfair stalls, food stations and you’ve got your own summer festival happening.
With such impressive grounds the venue is fabulous for team building activities: treasure hunts, activities on the water (zorbing, fishing, dragon boat racing spring to mind). The venue’s extensive terraces, lawns and gardens are particularly impressive during the summer months, when Amber Lakes can be hired for both corporate and private summer parties, as well as weddings (we’re promised a wedding licence soon!).
Escape to the alpine
It’s tempting to think of Amber Lakes as a summer venue with lazy days spent enjoying a slice of the country-life but the Lodge would also make the most brilliant winter party venue; picture it filled with fur rugs, scented garlands and masses of white fairy lights whilst you sip on seasonal hot cocktails, for a perfectly Scandinavian Christmas. Finish off the evening with guests gathering on the wrap-around terrace to see the end of a fabulous event with a firework display lighting up the sky.
Endless event options
We loved the flexibility of the venue as the size and location mean it can be used for corporate events, team building, weddings or private parties. We’re buzzing with ideas on how to style it and as the venue is a blank canvas we’d be delighted to help any of clients bring their vision to life at this wonderful new addition to the events scene.
