Cowdray House

The rolling rolling hills and open skies of the Sussex coutryside are not the only features which make Cowdray House a wonderful location. Set in 110 acres of private gardens, grounds and parkland, Cowdray House is a spectacular venue for exclusive-use hire. It was home to the Estate’s original polo field, commonly referred to as the House Ground, and guests today can enjoy polo lessons during their stay.

Cowdray is delighted to welcome Iain Beaumont who has joined the team as Director of Events.

Following an initial career in the Army, Iain has completed roles with the National Trust before joining Powderham Castle, near Exeter, as Castle Director where he established a thriving events and hospitality business.

In his new position he will be responsible for overseeing the extensive events and hospitality business at Cowdray. The estate event venues include the luxury exclusive-use Cowdray House, Midhurst’s Capron House and Cowdray Park Golf Club. Commenting on his appointment Iain said:

“I am excited to join the Cowdray team and look forward to building on the excellent work achieved to date to help build on the wide variety of events currently undertaken, whilst identifying opportunities for the future.”

Jonathan Russell, Cowdray CEO, said: “We are delighted to welcome Iain to the events team. As part of the Cowdray Senior Management Team, I very much look forward to working with him to continue to grow this exciting area of our business.”
