The Slate

Tailored. Exclusive. Unique. Built from BREEAM Excellent rated architecture, The Slate provides tailor-made experiences and offers exclusive occupancy. It is completely open and a fluid space that has an individual food offer. Capped off with an impressive lakeside view, The Slate is the essence of anything is possible.

Meeting Space

A single, completely flat, open space with no pillars or fixtures to get in 
the way and a view out over a lake.
 The capacity accommodates up to 
400 delegates, with the structure also able to support two 4x4 cars. This venue provides a blank canvas and you add your colour: whatever it is. Our events support and production teams take your dream and make it a reality.

Food and Drink

Just like the venue itself, dining 
is modern, flexible and individual. Breakfast is available for early arrivers and for evening meals, we can manage anything from banquets to low key buffets. Lunch is really special, with eclectic food stations which allow 
you to grab a plate and put together whatever you want. And whatever it is, it will be locally sourced from the finest local food producers, designed to satisfy and keep you alert in addition to being, Food for Life accredited by the Soil Association – it’s food for thought.


Our 358 hotel styled en-suite bedrooms are situated at our 
adjacent venues Scarman and Radcliffe. Whether you want executive bedrooms or a suite, we can help. Since a good night’s sleep is so important, our pillow menu lets you choose exactly what you lay your weary head on when you finally get to bed.
