It’s July, it’s sunny outside, right now you’re thinking about getting that last minute deal somewhere hot (although if you want really hot try the Central line), but it’s up to you to plan the work party, yep you’re already having to think about Christmas. There we said it, the C word that no one wants to hear, but let us introduce you to new venue, Amber Lakes.
Having its official launch this month, this venue is just ten minutes from Heathrow and only forty five minutes from Central London and what a difference that distance can make, because as the name suggests, Amber Lakes is surrounded by water, an 120 acre lake to be exact and 450 acres of countryside. Events take place in the Scandinavian inspired Amber Lodge which has space for 120 guests for a dinner, 250 guests for a standing reception, or if you add in the wraparound terraces and lawns then there is space for up to 500 guests. Of course it isn’t just for Christmas, it would be a beautiful wedding venue, or hire it for the party of all birthday parties.
When you hire the venue, you’ll also get to use the boat – Barnaby X, kayaks and motorised buggies to explore the grounds – we’re thinking the ultimate treasure hunt, as you can hide the clues anywhere, including on islands that are only accessible by boats…
