Mothering Sunday

Mothering Sunday

For me Mothering Sunday marks the beginning of spring. It’s a little hard to believe that with the distinct chill in the air and frost still glittering the leaves but we have snowdrops nodding their cheery head, and the daffodils are getting ready to burst into flower.

Soon our gardens will be filled with these beauties. Spring is round the corner! ©kam


What is Mothering Sunday ?

  • Mothering Sunday is held on the fourth Sunday of lent, exactly three weeks before Easter. It was traditionally the date people would visit their “mother” church which was the biggest church or cathedral in their area.
  • In later years, it was adopted as a time when those in service were given rare time off, to visit their mother, often taking a gift from their place of work.
  • The sense of occasion meant that the traditional rules of fasting were relaxed, and a celebratory meal would be enjoyed by the family, as part of all being together again.

Flowers and small gifts as well as delicious food are still a big focus for Mothering Sunday, and as you know, we love to help you celebrate your family. There is no better way to say thank you to all those who give their time to caring for us than with a sumptuous lunch or supper.

Our charming decorations create a special atmosphere


Celebrating the beginning of spring our menu fizzes with exciting dishes such as braised shoulder of lamb infused with the unique flavours of Morocco, or the simplicity of a perfect roast served with trimmings galore.

Whatever you decide, and whether you choose to have a grand gathering in our tithe barn, or a more intimate meal in our charming restaurant we will make sure it is a day to treasure. Contact 01952 580240 for more details, and follow this link for to see our full menu

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been two weeks since we attended The Wedding Industry Awards. If you follow our Facebook page, you’ll already be familiar with our journey but I thought I’d take the chance to share some of our memories, and some of the wonderful things our customers had to say about us.

The Wedding Industry Awards are a glittering celebration of the best in the business.

The Wedding Industry Awards are national awards,voted for by the people who really matter; the brides and grooms. It is a real accolade for our hard-working team, and we were thrilled to have our place in the final. Winning the regional award for Best Wedding Venue means we know we give our couples a truly memorable wedding day to treasure.

Some of our proud team.


Team work and expertise create wedding days that our couples treasure.

One of our favourite things about receiving our award was being able to read what our guests had to say about their day.

I would highly recommend The Hundred House to anyone who wants a heart-felt wedding day as our wedding was just perfect and if we could go back and do it again we wouldn’t change anything. All of the staff were so helpful and on hand from the day we booked, they were so accommodating and excited for our big day that it made us feel special. The food was out of this world and everyone commented on it. The barn and the gardens added a spark of magic to our special day, everything was stunning!!! Date/Time of Message: 30/08/2017 19:16


The day was amazing very well organised but relaxed. Nothing was too much trouble. The day just flowed perfectly and my guests loved it. The barn was a great venue for an intermate wedding and we felt our guest were close to us during the ceremony which was beautiful. The gardens are stunning in July for photos and guests to wander. Food stunning and no one went hungry during the day and the canapés, ice cream in the garden and fantastic mini fish and chips fir the evening. Date/Time of Message: 30/08/2017 19:31


Gemma and the team at the Hundred House were first class, nothing was ever to much for them. Friendly, wonderful staff, stunning venue, and incredible food, would highly recommend to anyone looking to get married Date/Time of Message: 30/08/2017 20:56


These are just a few of the wonderful things the voters had to say. It means so much to read that all the care, planning and hard work we give to each of our couples means so much.
