Conferences

The cottages host the meetings and team building events for many companies from all over the country. Our central location with easy access to motorways via the A50 mean that no where is too far away. East Midlands airport is less than half an hour away with Manchester and Birmingham airports less than an hour. Derby railway station is half an hour away with direct trains from London. The rural setting makes it a perfect venue to have a meeting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Organisers have said that delegates achieve more than at the standard hotel venue and the large communial areas where everyone can get together make the team building activities far more successful. Catering for every occasion, breakfast, lunch and dinner, can be supplied as and when required. Many groups do part self catering but order in lunch so as not to disrupt the meetings with food preparation. Several groups have used the evening meal as part of the team building, splitting into smaller groups to have a ready steady cook type competition. The cottages offer extensive grounds for outdoor activities and being set on 150 acres many use this facility for walking/ thinking time. If additional activities are required several can be arranged to take place at the cottages. Speak to Greg at www.harddaysknight.co.uk
