Venue Hire Somerset – The Boathouse at Lakeside

Looking for the perfect venue for your event? The Boathouse at Lakeside Holiday Park is available for private bookings from the end of October through to the middle of March. Whether you are looking to book a birthday party, wedding reception, christening, anniversary, trade show, charity do, work event or anything your heart desires, we can help you to plan exactly what it is you are after, and make it a memorable event.

Available for daytime and evening hire, The Boathouse can accommodate up to 200 people seated (250 total capacity) and can provide facilities for many different functions and events. During the day, the venue is ideal for trade shows, conferences, meetings or children’s parties where the room is not needed in the evening. If you choose to book an evening event (after 6pm) however, then you have access during the day for preparations and setting up.

At The Boathouse, we offer much more than just hiring a room, we also provide many functions and solutions to make your event or celebration extra special. We have extensive on-site catering facilities, with expertise from our chefs, kitchen and front of house staff providing excellent food choices whatever your specification and budget. The room also features a large, fully stocked and licensed bar with a huge selection of beers, spirits and bespoke wines and champagne.

When it comes to entertainment, we have a stage area with professionally controlled, top of the range lighting and sound equipment, and a huge dance floor to dance the night away. Choose a disco with our professional DJ / Compere and his built-in club style light show, playing music to meet every taste, preference, and occasion, or opt for live entertainment and let us arrange singers, live music duos, bands, or comedians to perform at your event.

We have a resident Entertainments Manager who can offer expert advice on planning the best choice of entertainment for your special occasion, and our team can promote the event and produce flyers, leaflets, tickets and invitations as part of our function party packages.

Whatever your event, we can help to make your big day one to remember. Located in the centre of Somerset in the south west of England, The Boathouse, complete with the beautiful lake in the grounds, provides a stunning location for photography to capture special moments. Contact us to check availability, make a booking or simply just to enquire. Please call us on 01278 792 222 or click here.

*Please Note: Room Hire only covers the use of the room, NOT the function hire, so if you wish to book a function at The Boathouse, you will need to add any other elements to the total cost. See here for our Price Guide.

Party Room Hire

Depending on the event you are organising, there are two ways of hiring the venue. We have DAY HIRE which is suitable for trade shows, conferences or meetings where you do not require the room into the evening.

EVENING HIRE is for functions that require the room after 6pm but also includes the use of the room during the day for setting up and preparation. If your event runs between both sessions then the evening hire option will cover the complete day.
