Part of the Hand Picked Hotels group, Bailbrook House is one of Bath’s two Grade II-listed hotels. In 20 acres of parkland, the original Mansion House has been joined by Bailbrook Court, a modern facility that includes the expansive Brunel Suite for large-scale meetings and events.

Castle Combe, Nr Bath, SN14 7HR

The Manor House is a five-star country house hotel and golf club, set in 365 acres of Cotswolds countryside. Of its spaces, we like the vaulted Dunstanville Suite which leads to a couple of sun terraces with fine valley views. The interconnecting boardrooms, Gorges and Saxam, look out across the property’s lawns and beyond, suiting private dinners as much as meetings. Ask too about the Potting Shed, a new treatment room.

Thames Street, Sonning, Berkshire, RG4 6UT

Jerome K Jerome rhapsodised about Sonning in his novel Three Men in a Boat, and it’s easy to see why. At the heart of this beautiful village on the Thames, the events-ready Great House dates back to the 16th century. With its own terrace and access to the estate’s four acres, the newly-built Lodge houses five creativity-inducing spaces, a well-stocked pantry and its own bar. Elsewhere, there’s the Coppa Club restaurant and grounds for teambuilding.

Grove, Wantage, Oxfordshire, OX12 0DQ

Sir Frank Williams was the driving force behind one of Formula One’s most successful teams. Today, he lends his name to the Williams Conference Centre. At the F1 outfit’s Oxfordshire base, its modern event facilities are housed in the building that used to be the home of BMW’s Le Mans project. Once they are done meeting, training and networking, groups small and large can wander around Sir Frank’s private collection of more than 40 Grand Prix racing cars. Or they can get active, with guests going head to head on a giant Scalextric or taking on the Pit Stop Challenge together. However you want to structure your day, on-site event managers offer full planning support.

Ascot Racecourse, Ascot, SL5 7JX

Views over the Plaza Lawns towards the Parade Ring and south side of the Grandstand make the Ascot Pavilion a grand setting for events.

With its own entrance, Wi-Fi and air conditioning throughout, it is a versatile space that can adapt just as readily to a largescale conference as a dinner dance, awards ceremony or drinks reception. Day delegate packages include room hire, refreshments, a buffet lunch and on-site parking.
