Why A Countryside Event Venue is Perfect for Your Next Conference or Meeting

meetings and conference venues in the countryside
With beautiful scenery to offer in all seasons, the countryside allows your attendees to de-stress

Respite from the hustle and bustle of city life

When a typical day starts with battling the commute through town, getting away from it all in a rural location can be the perfect way to keep employees refreshed and focused. A countryside conference venue offers a peaceful retreat where the focus is kept purely on your meeting, away from distractions but still equipped with everything you need for a great meeting. With beautiful scenery to offer in all seasons, the countryside allows your attendees to de-stress and address the priorities of your business. Here at Mythe Barn, our bright, airy rooms bring the outdoors in, making the perfect change from the usual stuffy business rooms and giving everyone the break needed to refocus on what’s important.

If you want to display large items such as cars and machinery, you will find a wide choice of spaces outside of the city.

Open, accessible spaces

A great benefit of rural meeting venues is the usable space. Away from tightly packed cities and set back from surrounding villages, there’s often ample parking and wide, open spaces for getting around. At Mythe Barn, we offer parking for 60 guests, with overflow parking available for bigger events. Countryside event venues like Mythe Barn, now have great accessibility for disabled attendees too, with lots of spaces on the ground floor and hard standing ground to access the rooms.

If you’re launching a new product or want to display large items such as cars and machinery, you will find a wide choice of spaces outside of the city. Large rooms with wide doors and open space outdoors, gives you both internal and external options for your event.

Fresh air helps rejuvenate attendees and keeps them inspired

Fresh air and green surroundings

If you’re planning a full days meeting, breaks are essential for keeping attendees engaged. Being in a rural location means its easy to take 5 minutes away from talking business and refresh minds ready for the next part of the meeting. Fresh air helps rejuvenate attendees and keeps them inspired and contributing to the meeting. Consider taking a 15-minute walk around the surrounding area or break with a drink outdoors, taking in the sun on a nice day. It will break up your meeting and stop things becoming stale.

Many countryside conference venues have the added benefit of in-house catering teams

Everything in one place

After a full day of conference activities, a good meal might be high up on your priority list and many countryside conference venues have the added benefit of in-house catering teams. At Mythe Barn, our caterers use locally sourced produce wherever possible and offer a wide choice of menus – from a sandwich lunch to a luxurious five course banquet for special events. On-site catering makes it easier to organise your day, rather than trying to commute between different venues or having attendees rush out for lunch in between sessions. Mythe Barn has the added benefit of on-site accommodation, meaning everything you need for multi-day conferences is in one place. After enjoying a delicious, fresh cooked meal, you can retire to our executive suite or courtyard rooms knowing a great continental breakfast will be ready for you to start day two right.
