A brief history of Ewell Court House
Avenue House was a gentleman’s’ residence built near the old farm of Ewell Court in the late 1600’s. In the 1700’s it was owned by the Bridges family and in the 1800’s was being used as the headquarters for their gunpowder business. In 1879, John Bridges married Edith Tritton and decided to create a new home by remodelling Avenue House for grand Victorian entertaining and extensively landscaping its grounds. On completion, the house was renamed Ewell Court. Later owners, the Stoddarts, facing financial difficulties in 1935, sold the house to the Council. As the centre of World War II civil defence for West Ewell, ambulances, and air raid wardens were based at the house.
Present day Ewell Court House
Ewell Court House with its fascinating past offers the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Set in beautiful, historical grounds complete with fountains, cascades, rock pools and its own secret Grotto, the Grade II listed house stands proud at the entrance to the extensive Green flag parkland.
Today the grounds are well loved by the many visitors who come to simply while away the hours, picnic, play or watch the varied wildlife that have made the park and the lake their home. The entire estate receives excellent support from local community groups. The quaint plant nursery Bizzy Lizzy and the Tea Rooms can be found tucked away at the back of house with the library and Bambini Children’s Nursery close by.
The house is once again taking bookings for room hire which is much favoured as a wedding venue as well as hosting meetings and various community activities. The beautifully renovated celebration and meeting rooms are regularly used and set the perfect scene for any occasion. There are many excellent features throughout the house including the magnificent reception area, decorative ceilings, wood panelling, polished wooden floors, stained glass windows and the tegula paved terrace overlooking the lake.
Ewell Court House can accommodate 90 guests for your wedding breakfast and 120 guests for an evening party. The maximum seating available for ceremonies is 100. Anyone hiring the house for a day is not tied in to an in-house caterer, making it ideal to suit any budget.
The Ewell Horticultural Association and Link to Ewell Court Library are based at Ewell Court House.
Ewell Court House Tea Room
The Tea Room at Ewell Court House is to the rear of the house and is open Tuesday - Sunday from 10am until 4pm; serving light lunches and delicious home made cakes and scones.
