VENUE HIRE - SOLE OCCUPANCY & SMALL GROUPS 

With a range of accommodation options, including small cottages, glamping, camping and large residential centres, we offer sole occupancy in beautiful locations. Our comfortable accommodation provides a simple base for families and friends - and when the time is right, small functions and groups - to finally spend some quality time together. 
Stay in a beautiful location and have the place to yourselves; enjoy and share your own special space, and let us help you to get the most from it. 
 
The mountains, lakes, beaches and castles of Snowdonia; the Wyre Forest, Bewdley, safari park and Severn Valley with its canoeing and railway; rural Shropshire with the Ironbridge gorge and museums, Shropshire hills, cycling walking and golf; or the beautiful setting of Ingestre Hall and estate near Stafford; which would be your choice? 
All venues offer sole occupancy for your stay.  
A choice of small cottages, glamping, camping, residential centres and even a mansion! 
Self-catered, with use of our professional kitchens. 
Book with confidence - we are owned and managed by Sandwell Council; if your visit cannot go ahead because of COVID-19, you can amend your visit or get a full refund

We do ask for a minimum booking number to have exclusive use, which varies from centre to centre. 
 
A: Yes, the best options might be our smaller, more intimate accommodation: the cottages at Edgmond Hall and Frank Chapman Centre, Plas Gwynant, or glamping pods at Frank Chapman. Ingestre Hall has 100 beds.
