Relax, explore or get sporty at High Leigh

High Leigh has a large range of sport and leisure facilities available for you to use. Its rural location, peaceful grounds and gardens are the perfect place for you to relax, discover and contemplate on your learnings.


Taking it easy

The centre’s 40 acre tranquil setting is one of the things that makes High Leigh so popular, giving all of the delegates who attend events at the centre plenty of space to relax, unwind and reflect on everything they’ve learned during the day. Your guests will love exploring the landscaped gardens, woodland, rockery and cave. There’s also a sunken pump house to discover and the rock arch that leads people back towards the house from the wooded part of the gardens which are still there today.



Inside you’ll find a comfortable lounge area to unwind in after a long day. Help yourself to tea, hot chocolate and a range of Paddy & Scott's coffee all day long.

The lounge features a licenced bar stocking a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks as well as snacks.

If you’re feeling competitive, our games room features air hockey, table football and board games. We also have a collection of lawn games that you are free to use. Why not organise a game of lawn croquet?


Family facilities

Your younger delegates will love exploring the 40 acres of gardens and woodland as well as the games rooms and outdoor sports facilities.


Sports and fitness

High Leigh features a new Fitness Trail, lawns and gardens. There are also areas to play football and tennis. Organisations using High Leigh can arrange group events, tournaments and games in these well maintained spaces.




High Leigh is equipped with an indoor gym for the exclusive use of our guests.

You’ll find running, cycling and cross training machines that are hooked up with Peloton. You’ll also find a punching bag and kettlebell weights to help get the most out of your workouts.
