Closing For Refurbishment

From 1st April until September 2015 the Bar Convent is undergoing an exciting transformation as part of the Living Heritage Project.  We’re installing a brand new exhibition experience, new gift shop, completing the refurbishment of our guesthouse and conference rooms, and improving access.

Please note that, as we upgrade the conference rooms we are not able to accommodate delegates at this time.  We re-open in August with exciting improvements including new efficient heating and cooling systems in all our main meeting rooms, new technology improvements and a full redecoration of each meeting room.

We look forward to welcoming you back from September onwards to see our new facilities.  Sorry for any inconvenience.


We have four meeting rooms available, each with their own individual character. 
All our rooms can tailored for different training, meeting or social events.  There is a quiet secluded garden at the rear, which is ideal for breaks.

We offer modern business facilities inside heritage surroundings at cost effective rates.  All our rooms can be provided with data projectors and our Beddingfield Room is fully fitted with permanent audio visual facilities and new conference call technology.   Free WIFI is available to all residents and fax/email facilities can be arranged via our Reception Office. View Equipment Hire...
