Training and Meeting Room Facility

The Hayloft is a meeting room that offers a comfortable, welcoming environment, without the distractions so often encountered in large conference and training centres. During fine weather there is additional “outdoor classroom” space.

The Hayloft is for hire by training businesses, by companies and organisations that have their own “in-house” trainers and for hire to people who run courses on special interests and for team building and management development.

It is also suitable for use as an external boardroom, or for those “days in the wood” that allow scope for getting out of the office and focussing on strategic issues or brainstorming.

The Hayloft can accommodate up to 10 delegates. The room is light and airy and completely private and there is ample parking in the grounds.

A computer projector and screen, white boards, flip charts and note pads can be provided at no extra cost. Also included is broadband internet, with wireless and cable access. Other equipment may be hired at a daily rate.


Hot and cold drinks
are available within the Hayloft and can be accessed at all times and/or provided at set times. Biscuits or pastries can be available for delegates upon arrival, if required.

A delicious, home-cooked, two-course lunch is offered at £15 person. Alternatively a selection of sandwiches can be provided at £8 per person. Lunch is served in the kitchen/dining room of the main house and if the weather is fine lunch may be served in the garden. Special diets can be catered for if sufficient notice and details are provided.

Leisure opportunities

The grounds of Bradgate Manor are peaceful and private and the small woodland has bluebells and daffodils in the springtime and a cool canopy during summer time whilst the autumn leaves and winter branches of the mature oak and beech trees are a delight to be enjoyed by all.

The Hayloft is just a few minutes walk away from the historic ruins of Netley Abbey and from the shore of Southampton Water; a busy and interesting waterway, where it is possible to view (and, in some cases, participate in) windsurfing, sailing, kite flying and just watching the ocean-going liners and commercial shipping that are a regular feature.
