residential conferences


A place you can call home

What better way to get to know your group than taking them away on a quality residential conference? Make the most of quality time together over dinner and in the bar or lounge, after a full day of valuable sessions.

Our conference centres in Derbyshire, Hertfordshire and East Anglia are perfectly placed to escape the everyday rat race. These stately homes are set in stunning grounds, with a range of comfortable bedrooms, fully-equipped meeting rooms and breakout lounges. Your guests will enjoy unlimited tea and coffee and be served delicious hot meals throughout their stay, so they leave feeling refreshed and energised.


A warm welcome

You’ll be amongst friends at our conference centres. We pride ourselves on our Christian hospitality and we are here to serve you, whether you’re running a conference for 40 people or a large event for up to 400.

Every year our venues host a wide range of residential events, for Christian organisations alongside charities, educational groups and businesses, so you can rest assured our team will ensure your event goes smoothly. Our venues are disability friendly with wheelchair access to main conference rooms, hearing induction loops and accessible bedrooms.


Everything you need to shine

All of our conference halls feature integrated audio visual (AV) equipment, including high quality sound systems, Yamaha digital pianos, flat screens, projectors and more. Best of all, AV hire is provided for free as part of our all-inclusive pricing.

Also available are a range of meeting rooms in a variety of sizes, ideal for smaller group activities and workshops to use throughout your event.


The perfect place to lay your head

All our centres feature a selection of single, double, twin and family rooms. Accommodation is charged per person, with no supplements for single occupancy of bedrooms.

Tea and coffee making facilities are provided, along with free Wi-Fi, so you can work or relax in the comfort of your room.

We also offer rooms specifically designed for delegates with disabilities, including adapted doors and space for wheelchair users, alarm pull-cords and specially designed showers and bathroom suites. 


Let us cater for you

Our expert chefs and hospitality staff will provide delicious meals, lunches and refreshment breaks. With plenty of choice and variety, we strive to provide balanced and nutritious food. We are committed to sourcing as much locally produced food as possible and serving in-season produce.

Select from cooked and continental breakfasts, sandwich platters, light lunches, large buffets and three course meals. All our tea, coffee and hot chocolate is sourced from ethical suppliers and provided to you free of charge.

Discuss your needs with our dedicated events team and we will create the perfect catering package for your event. We can tailor or enhance your menu according to individual requirements or specific dietary needs.


Bursary funding

To help as many people as possible to experience your event, we have created a bursary fund for Christian groups and organisations. We look to provide funding to delegates who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend.

Often, the bursaries enable delegates to enjoy their first ever weekend away and allow them a break from their normal routine, their cares and their worries.
