    We have around 90 guests for an annual dinner in early December or end of November? Are you able to accommodate this preferably on a Thursday?

      Hi Nicola, we are sorry to say that Jesmond Dene house no longer wishes to take PDD bookings. There are plenty of other super venues in Newcastle!

    I was desperate to hold part of wedding day here as it is a fantastic looking venue which I’ve been to before. I tried emailing and calling several times but unfortunately I never heard back from the staff 🙁

      Hi Louise, I think there must have been a changeover of staff, unfortunately the service is not what it used to be, and they no longer take PDD bookings. I’m sure there are several other places that would live to host your wedding just get in touch with us through the contact page.
