This is your private quiet space…
Whether you are looking for somewhere different to bring your team or a distinctive, yet accessible venue to deliver your training and development, then we’ve created a simple package to make the most of your time here. Confident that you will leave refreshed and renewed, with a sense time well spent that will last the weeks and months ahead.
Our well equipped and flexible Long Room with views across the lake and valley is ideal for small to medium-sized teams (ie 5-15, though it comfortably holds up to 30 for more structured events). It has all you need to do your fresh thinking, restore your wellbeing and have the conversations that don’t normally happen.
It’s a completely different rhythm… we weren’t distracted and had time for what really mattered. A really satisfying day. Thank you.Client
It is comfortable, relaxed and peaceful with simple, homemade food and Coaltown Coffee – all self-service so you aren’t restricted. And definitely non-corporate, though there is wi-fi, flip charts and a large smart screen if you need it. Just no mobile signal – we want you to have uninterrupted space!
Then there’s the rest – we have walks around the lake and up the valley. Places to go and walk as you talk. Be creative. Or watch the alpacas. Just bring your country clothing and wellies (or walking boots).
This isn’t just a meeting in another place. It’s amazing – we laughed so much, and I was able to say things that I probably wouldn’t have said elsewhere…Team member
Our intention is to give you great breathing and development space. And there’s lots of it. Yet we are only 3 miles from Junction 46 on the M4.
This is a working alpaca farm and we do have a variety of activities going on here. Therefore we only host clients here a few days a week.
However, we have a reputation for being flexible and will endeavour to meet your requirements wherever possible.
We have a simple menu for hiring The Waterside for your time out:
- Single-day hire £250 (or £150 for a half-day to 12.30 pm or from 2 pm)
- Light refreshments throughout the day £5 per head
- Plus £10 per head for a simple lunch
You are more than welcome to bring your own lunch, though we do not have kitchen facilities for cooking in the Long Room.
If you want to include additional activities in the valley in your programmes – such as an alpaca farm walk, or wellbeing or creative activities – we would be happy to help.
Also, Sue is highly experienced in designing and facilitating team events and can support your development if needed.
