You Can Use the Facility

Scott Manor House is situated on a private, well-groomed 2.73 acre property in central Bedford and is an attractive venue for small group functions.  Leased from the HRM, the House’s use is controlled by the Fort Sackville Foundation. One of the mandates for the Foundation is to support use of the House and its grounds when that use provides benefit to the community of Bedford, and meets certain other criteria.

Bookings: The North Program Room and Tea Room on the main floor of the Scott Manor House and the grounds are available for use by not-for-profit, charity, and Bedford-based community groups, upon written request and approval by the Fort Sackville Foundation executive. Requests for use by commercial enterprises may also be considered. A donation in appreciation for use is requested, and would be gratefully received.

All requests to use the house and grounds must be in writing and are subject to approval by the Fort Sackville Foundation executive.
