The Mews Conference Centre, Cumberland Lodge

A truly distinctive setting for your event, our facilities are available for private hire for conferences, meetings and special events, which all helps to support our charitable and educational work.

This historic former royal residence stands apart as a venue for meetings, retreats, away days, professional development courses and special events. It combines the friendly, welcoming atmosphere of an English country house, steeped in history, with all the facilities expected of a modern conference centre. 

Hosting conferences and meetings is at the heart of what we do, and we offer a range of flexible spaces spread across three historic buildings, including large conference rooms with linked breakout rooms, elegant reception rooms, private meeting spaces and an open-air woodland seminar space.

The majority of our conference facilities are housed in the Georgian Mews next to the main Lodge building, which was once a royal stables. Flitcroft, our largest conference room, can accommodate 120 people and features three dedicated breakout rooms. In addition, Groom's House offers an exclusive facility for small groups, ideal for meetings or away days.

A wide range of organisations have used our facilities in the last few years, including the Local Government Assocation, the Police, The Institute of Ideas, Mars UK and the Department of Health.Please call Matthew Hancock, our Sales & Marketing Manager, on 01784 497 780, or email for further information or to discuss availability.
