The responsibility for choosing a conference venue or one suited to a very special social gathering can never be taken lightly: they’re all depending on you to get it right!







The search ends here. Historic Letton Court in beautiful rural Herefordshire, overlooks 260 acres of prime grazing land, a magnificent oxbow lake and 1.5 miles of the wonderful River Wye. 

Recently refurbished to the very highest traditional standards, this magnificent country manor easily accommodates up to 20 guests in 10 exquisitely appointed bedrooms – 4 en-suite with baths and showers; a splendid, high-ceilinged dining-room with views across the Great Lawn and all the leisure space you need for recreation, conversation or just watching a movie from the opulence of a squishy sofa. This is relaxation with few equals…

The spacious, modern kitchen features a large, adjoining breakfast room with full-width folding doors onto the patio and heated outdoor pool – perfect for getting the day off to a good start. Later, sip cocktails by the pool before having a dip or enjoy quiet conversation in the opulent drawing-room whilst enjoying the magical views of the Bredwardine Hills and beyond.

For anglers seeking to mix pleasure with pleasure the oxbow lake and the clear water of the Wye provide opportunities to battle with big barbel, chub, carp, tench, bream, trout, grayling, roach, perch and superb salmon; its all there on safe, gently sloping banks within the pastoral loveliness of the valley just a 5 minute stroll across the meadow – and at no cost to guests. 

This superb common carp took a bait placed close to the lily pads in the oxbow lake.
