Lansdowne House – the ideal venue for a boutique conference or for a larger promotional event such as a product launch.  Our spacious main reception room is 24 meters by 8 metres (72 feet by 26 feet) approximately and it can be used in its entirety or it can be sectioned off into two smaller rooms (13 by 8 metres and 11 by 8 metres) with a large wooden divider.  It is our policy to have only one conference at a time at Lansdowne House so you would be free to utilise this room in whatever configuration you choose. As well as the main reception room, you would also be able to sit in comfort in our main lounge and enjoy refreshments from our well stocked bar.




We have extensive grounds with a large, secure parking area and expansive lawns and garden areas which offer several private spots for outdoor sessions, team building games, relaxation exercises or just somewhere to sit for a quiet moment.


For meals there is a wide choice of dining areas. For small groups (up to 12 people) you may like to dine in our impressive dining room and enjoy lunch seated at our 1850 Victorian table. Or, you may choose to dine 'al fresco' in our private brick courtyard and listen to the sound of birds and a trickling waterfall. If your group is bigger, tables can be set in the main reception area for a working lunch, or in summer, you may like the idea of a picnic hamper on the lawn under the trees.  In the winter when it is cold, you can enjoy lunch in front of roaring open fires.

Whether you are looking for a conference venue or a product launch, we have an extensive range of food options to offer. At Lansdowne House, every event is catered for on an individual basis. We take the time to discuss with you the purpose of your event and the type of refreshments which will best suit your needs. By doing this, you get just the right sort of food and beverages for your particular function.  Wherever possible all our produce is bought fresh on the day and everything is prepared in our own kitchens. A full bar service is also available.


Below we have set out a few options for you to consider. However, flexibility is paramount at Lansdowne House. Once you have told us the objectives for your conference or product launch, we will then design your event to meet your requirements.
