Funeral Teas in Monmouthshire

At such a difficult time we feel it is important to support family members in the planning and preparation of a reception/tea following the funeral of a loved one.

Deciding on where to retire to, following a funeral is always a difficult decision to make. We aim to meet individual requirements with a selection of venue rooms to choose from -  the Library and Clarkes Dining Room for smaller gatherings and the Ballroom catering for larger gatherings with ample space for visitors to move around freely among family and friends.

We will provide floral table arrangements in the venue room you choose, for which no extra charge is made. The reception areas leading into the ballroom provide adequate space and facilities for friends and acquaintances to gather while they wait for family members following a funeral service. 

The hotel car park accommodates 100 vehicles from where easy access to the main building is available via the front steps and a ramp.

Usk Natural Burial Ground

Located close to Meadow Natural Burial Ground, Usk Castle Chase's tranquillity is typical of the surrounding Monmouthshire countryside. Unhurried, tranquil and private, it offers something gentler. A place of escape, away from it all. 

Set in 14 acres of Monmouthshire countryside and surrounded on three sides by mature woodland, the burial ground is a peaceful and uplifting place for reflection and remembrance. The meadow has far reaching views to the south and south-west over the Usk Valley. The ridge of mature trees along the eastern edge of the meadow is carpeted with bluebells in late spring.  We are within easy reach for your post-funeral gathering and offer plentiful parking for larger gatherings.
