Winterbourne House and Garden

Get creative at your next meeting in this Arts and Crafts Edwardian house.

Winterbourne was once the family home of local industrialist John Nettlefold and well-respected garden designer Margaret Nettlefold. Now a museum and public botanic garden, its two meeting rooms blend period charm with contemporary technology. Attendees are welcome to visit the beautiful garden, and day delegates will enjoy a special menu including a traditional afternoon tea-style lunch.
