With 500 acres of rolling land and transport links nearby, Braxted Park in Essex, offers the modern amenities you’d expect from a dedicated conference venue with the charm and character of a country estate. Its cookery school has a team of 11 chefs presiding over 25 different courses, which range from ‘Indian party delights’ and ‘International tapas’ to ‘Modern British’ and ‘Everlasting English’. There’s a range of package options to suit the nature of the day. ‘Cooking with a conference’ gives your delegates the chance to break up a day of meetings with a short cookery course (max. two hours), rounding off the day with a glass of wine. For teambuilding, hands-on full-day courses work particularly well.
