WHO – Yellowfoot Lodge, Windsor, Berkshire 

WHAT – 10-50 delegates one main room.  Charity, Corporate, Public Sector 

WHY – Exclusive hire, home from home, great food and excellent AV 

It’s not long ago Yellowfoot Lodge was a condemned building just outside of Windsor with water coming through the ceiling.  Now a light, bright meeting venue that puts customers first and an ideal centre for learning, creative thinking – in fact, any face to face activity.  A blank canvas “exclusive hire venue” – that can turn its hand to any sort of event for up to 50 people. The flexibility of the one main event space and the mindset of the operations team combine to offer solutions to client requests.  Wander through in to a homely kitchen area, where the whiff of coffee beans prevails, and the sight of “home-made” cookies, donuts and fruit salads cannot fail to impress.  Buffet lunches cater for all dietary requirements. And if you’re still hungry in the afternoon there are chocolate nibbles together with more healthier options.  A distinctly country feel whilst being within striking distance of M4 corridor and London it is an ideal location for international events because of proximity to Heathrow.  Real value for money, plus, there’s Molton Brown Soap and laundered towels – nice touch!
