Business retreats to inspire

Space & time to reconnect

At a business retreat at Manor By The Lake, our entire manor house and its grounds are exclusively yours. So whether you’re holding an informal meeting at the Marguerite Library or a buzzy brainstorming session at our Rock Bar (we find a game of table football really gets the creativity flowing) – get stuck in; you won’t be disturbed.

Space to breathe

With ample space for your business retreat, Manor By The Lake isn’t short of options for you to choose from.

Just take a look at the spaces…


A bright and beautiful period room with stunning views of the pretty gardens, this space is as impressive as it is versatile.

The Maximilian can happily host up to 100 guests, making it perfect for all occasions, from conferences to corporate dining.


Opening out onto the lake and gardens, our grand ballroom is light, bright, and incredibly spacious – in fact, it can quite comfortably hold up to 250 guests theatre style.

Complete with its own large bar, stage and facilities, its neutral colour also means it can be dressed in any theme.

Rock Bar

With three different areas, a bar, jukebox, and even a game rooms with table football and a pool table, the Rock Bar is the perfect place for informal meetings, breakout sessions, or just a relaxing drink.

Fun fact: it’s also accessible via a secret passageway from the Lyderick!


A medium-sized meeting room that’s ideal for smaller meetings or dining events, The Adele is also a great breakout or informal area.

And that’s not all, with gorgeous views through the pretty stained glass windows across the gardens, it’s a great spot to relax and inspire.


The Lyderick lends itself to a variety of different layouts, making it a fantastic space for corporate dining, presentations and training.

With impressive wood panelling and sweeping views of the grounds, it can also happily hold a larger number of guests – making it one of our most versatile spaces.

Marguerite Library

Whether you want to host a private dinner in a stunning setting, hold a meeting, or even divide the space up into two separate areas, the Marguerite Library is an incredibly versatile space.

And with beautiful period features throughout, it’s no wonder it’s one of our most popular rooms!

Gardens & Lake

Take a turn around the impressive grounds, relax in the beautiful Italian Garden, admire the pretty lake, stroll across our secret bridge: we could go on!

Spanning seven acres, whether you’re planning an activity-filled away day, or wanting an abundance of space, look no further.

Bedroom & Suites

Four poster beds, roll top baths, spacious bathrooms and state-of-the-art facilities; there’s no better place to settle in for the night.

Lisa, Endsleigh

“Thank you for a wonderful event last Thursday, the venue was the perfect setting for a murder mystery and your staff could not have been more welcoming, friendly or helpful.  The food was also delicious!”
