Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Dower House, Hitchin, Hertfordshire, sleeps 10-27 in 10 bedrooms.
The unique atmosphere of The Dower House makes it a very special venue in which to hold your meetings, conferences, seminars, and training events.
It is the perfect antidote to sterile and impersonal hotels and ordinary training venues.
The Dower House, a classic Victorian country house in the style of a Normandy "manoir", is set in its own two and a half acres of beautiful gardens and woodland, which also makes it an ideal venue for team-building events.
We have several large bedrooms where we can accommodate up to 26 people for residential purposes and a wonderful chef, Anna, who specialises in home-cooked fresh healthy food, and will also cater to your individual dietary preferences.
Self-catering terms are also available if required.
Hexton is a tiny hamlet which seems a world away from the noise and bustle of the everyday stresses of business life, yet it is only 15 minutes drive from Hitchin, a wonderful country market town, with easy access to the A1(M) and mainline train station (40 minutes to London Kings Cross). We are also about fifteen minutes from the M1, and Luton Airport, which makes it perfect for fast access from just about everywhere!
The Dower House was the home of lyricist Dee Shipman, and many of her famous colleagues, such as Charles Aznavour, Petula Clark and David Soul, have stayed here while they worked together on musicals for the West End and Broadway, proving what an inspirational place it is for creative thinking - and just what you want for your colleagues and clients!
The Dower House is also home to New Oceans NLP Training, Coaching, & Consultancy organisation, who will be delighted to create custom-built package deals to include the venue plus trainings, team-building and business coaching, when required.
Accommodation prices on request. We cater for most requirements and will work out a competitive price depending on your particular requirements.
