Our latest exciting Partner Insight is from Jen Green our Conference Team Supervisor who recently went on a site inspection to the stunning 5 red star Rockliffe Hall and was taken aback by the developments happening at the already beautiful property. Here is what Jen had to say…
Conveniently located just off the A1 (M) near Darlington, it is the perfect destination for the North of England.
A perfect combination of old and new, Rockliffe has the Old Hall was originally a family home which is now joined by a new extension and the two blend seamlessly. The 61 luxury bedrooms are located within the Old Hall, New Hall, Tiplady Lodge & Armstrong Apartments which often house members of the Middlesbrough football team.
The leisure facilities have been lovingly designed around the feeling of the estate and the spa garden, which can be hired exclusively and would make the most amazing setting for a private party or a drinks reception before dinner. It hosts the most amazing infinity pool which overlooks the grounds, fire pit and heated relaxation loungers.
What I found most inspiring was how they are constantly thinking outside the box and creating new concepts. The hotel is undergoing a new development within the grounds called Mischmasch, which is inspired by a periodical written by Lewis Carroll for his family. We were shown their new artic pods which all have different themes including a games room and one that would be perfect for a syndicate space to hold a meeting/breakout session.
They are in the process of completing the Looking Glasshouse which will be able to be used for corporate events, receptions, car launches and more. Directly outside the Glasshouse are the walled kitchen gardens where the team now grow produce for the hotel’s restaurants. Mischmasch is available for overnight, restaurant and spa guests to visit during their time at Rockliffe Hall.
Final Verdict:If you are looking for something unique for up to 250 delegates or an additional add on to enhance your event then Rockliffe would be the perfect setting and they are completely adaptable and always looking to exceed expectations.
