Meeting Spaces at Escot

Meeting Spaces

During these times where many of us have been asked to work from home, the lack of human interaction takes its toll.

While more formal conferences and seminars will return at some point, the option of hiring a meeting space gives businesses, charities and other organisations the opportunity of getting together.

What defines a meeting space?

Put simply, it’s a space usually set aside for people to get together on a more informal basis to hold meetings, discuss issues and even make decisions. In the world of Covid-19 and home-working, it is also somewhere simply to meet with colleagues face to face.  

What can Escot offer?

We have three distinct day rooms with plenty of space and lots of natural daylight. One of the guidelines that is being highlighted is the need for fresh air and the circulation of air. Having substantial rooms with high ceilings is helpful and in each room there are large sash windows that can be opened. In two, these open to provide access to the outside space. All three rooms have real fires.

White Room

A stunning, light filled room with views to the lake and the gardens.


Library meeting space Escot Estate

Filled with books, the Library has a more formal feel with views to the lake and across the Estate.

Kennaway Room

The Kennaway Room is comfy and very informal, with views across the Estate.

What about outside spaces?

Meeting outside is ideal, and we are fortunate to have space right next to the house. We can provide a gazebo or canopy to provide shade on sunny days.


Overlooking the lake and the grounds, the stone terrace is a beautiful area for meetings. The view changes with every season and is always peaceful and relaxing.  


Our gardens have a large lawn area and many superb trees, shrubs and flowers giving lots of colour in the spring, summer and autumn months.


catering Escot meeting rooms

Our catering is in-house and prepared with care using the very best ingredients, including homegrown and locally sourced produce. If you are having an informal meeting you might prefer informal catering, perhaps an individual picnic for outdoor meetings.

Covid-secure venue

The venue and our team keep up to date with Covid updates so you will feel secure and safe using any of the meeting spaces, inside or outdoors at Escot House.
