Sun's out and the flowers are in bloom!

When the sun is shining and the sky is blue, there are few places better to be than the English countryside. Lush, green and enchanting, our rolling hills, ancient woodlands and landscaped gardens come alive in the summertime.

As we love the English countryside, and value the role that open space plays in the development of ideas, we treasure the picturesque gardens that surround all of our conference venues. Beautifully maintained and bursting with colour, the outstanding grounds at CCT venues will help make your stay even more memorable.

Surrounding gardens and lakes

Landscaped gardens

The gardens that surround The Hayes, High Leigh and Belsey Bridge are lovingly looked after by our dedicated staff – we’ve even won awards for our stunning green spaces.

Take a walk around the grounds of your chosen CCT venue and you may well come across ornamental lakes, manicured flowerbeds and classical fountains. There’s always something new to discover around every corner, so make sure you get out and about during your stay.


In between meetings, workshops and presentations, it’s always great to get outside and relax in the fresh air. To help keep you busy, and to make it easy to socialise and meet new people, we’ve provided a variety of fun outdoor games for you to enjoy.

Have a go at giant chess, show off your croquet skills or challenge your fellow delegates to a game of football. If you’re staying at Belsey Bridge, you can even take a dip in our outdoor pool or enjoy an energetic game of tennis.

Outodoor activities

Wild spaces

As well as landscaped gardens and leisure facilities, you’ll also find beautiful wild spaces at CCT venues. Our woodlands and meadows are great places to enjoy an afternoon run, a relaxing evening walk or a morning of fun with the family. Some of our venues back out onto open countryside, providing you with even more picturesque places to explore.

Facilities for families 

As many of the groups that use our venues are family orientated, we’ve created a range of facilities especially for the younger party members. Many of our venues have play areas to keep our littlest guests happy.

If you’re interested in booking a CCT venue for an event of your own, or if you’d just like to find out more about what we offer, explore our site or get in touch with a member of our team.
