Venues in Gloucestershire


I'm looking for recommendations for training venues in Gloucestershire. I'm hoping to find venues that can help up to 30 delegates. Requirements include:

* Somewhere with space for walking.
* Large enough main room, with other syndicate rooms.
* A relaxing environment, that helps put people at ease.

  1. Venue – Ross on Wye
    Hi Rob,

    I know it’s just outside your area, but it may be worth trying the Pencraig Court Hotel on the outskirts of Ross-on-Wye. It’s a family fun business and is a great reasonably priced venue with spectacular views across the Wye Valley. The Drawing Room makes a great venue for 8 – 12 people. Drop Katie a note ( ) – they also run team type events out of there.

    Best of luck

  2. Training venues
    I’ve used the Hatherley Manor and the Ramada in Gloucester recently – both were good. We didn’t arrange for syndicate rooms, but at both there were large seated areas where groups could break out and grab a coffee. We only needed a room for 12, but both venues had a range of rooms on offer to suit different sized groups.


  3. What about Hawkwood College?
    Just a few thoughts, as this is my neck of the woods!

    Hawkwood college ( the outskirts of Stroud is in a truly beautiful setting, very peaceful (off the main road) so you can walk around the site, and into the woods as well if you like. There is some seating outside, to take advantage of the views. There is parking on site. They hold some very unusual courses there. It’s not plush, hotel standard, so it depends what you are looking for.

    Other venues that might meet your criteria: Painswick is a small peaceful village which has a hotel, few restaurants, a good post office and an authentic delicatessen. Bibury is also very pretty, and peaceful on weekdays. It has a trout farm and a couple of nice hotels. Or there are also some really lovely hotels in Lower Slaughter which may be able to accommodate you – the Lords of the Manor and the Lower Slaughter Manor both have websites. These are the plushest of my suggestions. Hawkwood still has the edge I feel.

    Hope that helps! Good luck in your search
