As we are heading into conference season, this week Make Events are focusing on our favourite country hotels across the UK to hold employee conferences at. These properties provide the perfect backdrop for a residential conference away from the office, allowing your delegates to focus during the sessions, interact over activities and relax in the evenings.

Located in the Cotswolds, Ellenborough Park boasts lavish bedrooms, a serene spa and meeting spaces for up to 120 delegates. Ellenborough are renowned for their hospitality and flexibility, which we experienced first hand during our recent stay for a six-day leadership week which we produced for a client.
