About this space

Located within the main house with dual aspect views of the Oxfordshire Countryside and the lake.

When William Stokes married Emily Brympton in around 1400, he inherited part of the manor house at Middle Aston. Over the following decades, he somehow managed to secure the rest of it, passing the whole caboodle on to his son John in 1427.

The William Stokes Room is on the first floor of the main house. Beautifully light and airy, it has double-aspect bay windows with spectacular views across the lake and countryside. It can hold 40 delegates in a theatre style, or 20 people in a boardroom style.

You approach the first floor rooms via an original wooden staircase. They are all equipped with projectors and screens, flip charts, and WiFi.
