‘Why, because it is a conference or meeting, should mediocre food and drink suffice, why choose the dullest venue?’

At Ston Easton Park we favour the ‘anti-conference’,

so we make our corporate functions as unlike a conference as we possibly can - and our guests love it. They can have exclusive use of the entire place if they like - even the 36 acres of private parkland - and they can make their staff, colleagues and clients feel valued and appreciated. They often take over our Yellow Room, which offers

a huge banqueting table, high vaulted ceilings, original oil paintings and stunning open views and while their gatherings are pleasant and relaxed, they still achieve enormous amounts. Rather than sandwiches, we can provide fabulous afternoon teas with lashings of home-baked goodies, elegant fine dining lunches and indulgent tasting menus for dinner. We can create signature cocktails to a special theme and are proud to offer the most incredible wine cellar…

Our business guests also get to enjoy opulent bedrooms, rather than faceless accommodation with uniform furniture and uncomfortable beds. There is no reason why business entertaining can’t

be an enjoyable, indulgent, luxurious experience. A corporate gathering, no matter how small, is an extension of your company, a reflection of your company and it will have a huge impact on your results if you get it right. We can help with that, as can lots of other independent, individual venues throughout the area. Perhaps for businesses to get their staff, colleagues

and clients to ‘think outside the box’, a brilliant place to start would be to think outside the box themselves.
