Birthday Party Venue

Landmark birthdays deserve a special venue – and The Boat House, surrounded by glorious Staffordshire countryside, offers just that.

Whatever the season, the Boat Houses’ generous proportions offer a great backdrop to your birthday celebration; with the opportunity for the party to spill out onto the decked area and exclusive landscaped grounds if the weather is fine.

Food can be tailored to the atmosphere you want to create – from a genteel afternoon tea birthday party to a formal sit-down birthday banquet or an evening party with buffet style food, cocktails, and dancing. Whatever the theme, our award-winning kitchen team can cater to your needs – with street food style canapés, BBQ and hog roasts on the deck also an option.

Meanwhile, a totally self-contained, well-stocked licensed bar with attentive staff serving only your party means that queues for the bar will be kept to a minimum.

We can also help source entertainment to suit your birthday party theme – from acoustic singers to live party bands, DJs and even theatre companies offering interactive Murder Mystery evenings for a birthday party with a difference.

1st Birthday Party Venue

With many parents no longer opting for traditional Christenings, elaborate first birthday parties are becoming an increasingly popular way to welcome new additions and celebrate their arrival with friends and family. The Boat House provides an excellent venue for first birthday parties – whether you are looking for an informal affair with a barbeque on the veranda or a traditional buffet inside, the flexible space means there is plenty of room to accommodate up to 150 guests and ample space for younger members of the party to play and let off steam both inside and out.

The dedicated en-suite relaxation room with its comfy sofa and flat screen TV is also a useful addition should things get a little much for the birthday boy or girl; offering a tranquil space where they can escape the party for a few minutes with mum or dad.

Landmark Birthday Party Venue

From 30th to 100th birthday celebrations, the team at the Boat House party venue can help tailor a party package perfect for the occasion. Whether it’s recreating the music and ambience of the 60s, 70s, 80s or 90s for an 80th, 70th, 60th, 50th or 40th birthday party, a surprise gathering for a 30th birthday or an afternoon tea party event to mark a 90th or 100th birthday the Boat House offers the perfect backdrop for a party they’ll remember.

Located on the A51 just outside Stone in Staffordshire the Boat House at Aston Marina is just about as central a party venue as you will find and, lying just a few miles from J14 and J15 the M6, is ideal for parties with guests traveling from North, South, East, and West.
