The Celtic Manor Collection's most recent acquisition is The Newbridge on Usk, a 200-year-old riverside inn – now a five-star restaurant-with-rooms – near the village of Tredunnock, on the Welsh
borders. Set 15 minutes away from the main resort (but with complimentary transfers), it’s the ideal setting for a small boardroom getaway, with six stylish bedrooms and a 16-capacity room for
private dining or meetings. The award-winning restaurant accommodates up to 100 people, and experienced head chef Gavin McDonagh is happy to create bespoke menus for events. The Celtic Manor team
are equally obliging, with years of experience organising events and conferences for blue-chip clients. Guests have full use of the resort’s facilities, though they might prefer to relax by the
river, watching the swans glide past or taking advantage of the superb fishing. It’s just two hours’ train journey from London to boot.
