Stanbrook Abbey is an impressive meetings venue that is guaranteed to wow your delegates from the moment they arrive.

Dating back to the early 16th century, a former Grade II listed monastery which lives on through the original architecture – from the dramatic stone cloisters to the gothic stained-glass windows

Having hosted many successful events over the years we thought we would share some ideas on what your day could look like. 

Unlike most venues Stanbrook abbey offers two entrances, one a contemporary arrival and the second taking in the Victorian Gothic East Entrance, perfect for a group arrival or should you have a requirement for a unique heritage venue that blends a modern style.

Arrival and refreshments throughout the day can be offered in the meeting room, in a private space, in our bar or even outside, the choice is yours...

Having recently spent £4.2 million on a hotel refurbishment we have added a new restaurant, The Refectory Dining Room and Terrace. This space seats 106 people and can be used for your delegate lunch space or, alternatively, for evening restaurant dining for smaller groups.

Meeting and event space is not in short supply and the rooms available offer great flexibility. From small boardrooms for an exec team get together or leadership event, to large conference space with vehicle access for up to 220, or a banqueting hall which is ideal for a charity dinner for up to 300. The options are endless...

Should you be wishing to engage, motivate or reward the team the 26 acre estate offers fantastic opportunities for team building.

We have played host to many different themes however the most popular have been “Crystal Mazed” for an outdoor event, hotly followed by game Your Thrones! We have also seen "Escape The Office" as a popular indoor event. Other options which delegates tend to really enjoy are country pursuits and total wipe-out.

When it comes to dining, the hotel can offer a formal affair in the stunning Callow Great Hall or East room or alternatively the Garden Pavilion provides a blank canvas for large themed events. We can otherwise provide street food with menus from around the world or bowl food, perfect for networking events.

After dinner is when Stanbrook Abbey really comes to life. There are so many unique spaces for the after party such as the Library Bar and the Cellar with Games Room offering a pool table and full size snooker table.

Outside both St Anne’s Hall and in the inner garth are fire pits where we can enhance your experience with hot chocolates and marshmallows.

Stanbrook Abbey is a truly unique venue and the team here enjoy planning and executing unforgettable events. If you are looking for somewhere to host your meeting or corporate event we can certainly provide you with a range of options to suit your needs.
