Meeting Rooms

The most productive meetings are held in the best environments …… and a meeting environment should inspire creative and positive thinking.

Climbing the stone steps and entering the grand front door of the Manor House into the elegant surroundings of the reception with the grand staircase and the light streaming through the stunning venetian window is uplifting of the soul and takes you to a positive place. You are in a place for debating, presenting, recruiting, arguing and resolving – and doing good business.

For large meetings and business presentations The Old Court Room is a fine environment. The space can be set out boardroom style with a large central table, theatre style with a top table or café style for networking and chatting.

The Freville Room on the first floor is ideal for those intimate meetings. The room is central on the first floor at the head of the grand staircase and opposite the Venetian window. It is an inspirational setting with views of St. Edmunds Church tower and the Sedgefield village green. The elegant surroundings make this a good place to meet.

There is space to relax outside of the room while taking tea or coffee and for interviews, candidates can wait comfortably for their appointments.

The Old Court Room is available for hire by the half or full day and at evenings and weekends. The Freville Room can be hired by the hour. For tenants of the Manor House there are discounted rates and preferential bookings.

We can support your meeting by providing reception and tea and coffee. Refreshments are available from a range of caterers which are local and close at hand and there are eating places within easy walking.

"“The Manor House is an excellent base for a business like mine. As well as being a beautiful building, the actual facilities offer everything that I need to be able to run a 21st Century PR consultancy. Along with the on-site provision of essentials like superfast fibre optic broadband and access to good storage and meeting room capacity, the Manor House is within very short walking distance of amenities in Sedgefield such as cafes and a post office. Meanwhile, the main arterial roads in the North East are only minutes away, which is handy not only for me, but also for any visitors who I meet here.”"

"Just want to say a huge thank you for everyone’s help at the Manor House. The jewelry event was a great success and everyone commented on how beautiful the room and building was. Most of the attendees were local and said they haven’t even known about the building. I will defiantly be interested in having further events in the future."

"I’d like to say on behalf of all at SDT thank you for the use of the Old Court Room for our open evening this year.
We had a very successful meeting with much lively discussions afterwards. I am quite sure the surroundings contributed much to the evening; when people are comfortable they perhaps are more inclined to join in the talk and to stay until a natural conclusion. As well as a big thank you can you please specifically thank Steph who was very helpful and unruffled by our questions and requests. Without her we wouldn’t have got started promptly, and perhaps not at all! "
Rodger Clubley - Sedgefield Development Trust Open Evening held on 23rd November 2015
"We had a brilliant time at the book launch of The Magic Mobile in September. Couldn’t have wished for a better venue. Everybody was very impressed with the Manor House and we were very grateful for the help and support we received from your staff. The catering equipment provided was just right – glasses, cups, cloths etc – and the large tables at either end of the Court Room were perfect for the buffet and the book display. Washing up is a bit difficult, as both the sink and dishwasher downstairs are small; carrying dishes up all those stairs is not easy either!
Access via the lovely garden and inviting entrance area certainly add to the experience, while the rear door entrance and car parking proved very useful to visitors from beyond Sedgefield. I will certainly recommend the Manor House to other people and would love to be able to use your excellent facilities again. Good luck with future events."
