“The difference between success & failure is a good team”

Ashbourne Self Catering have four  bespoke venues in Derbyshire “gateway to the Peak District”, we have used our experience to create stylish and well equipped spaces for director retreats, away days, corporate meetings and team building events.

 “I just wanted to send a message of thanks for the hire of Hollywood House and the Croupier last week. The whole team thoroughly enjoyed the experience and were overwhelmed by the grandeur of the House – our only disappointment was that we couldn’t stay longer! The casino night was a huge hit – given it was fake money, it still got quite excitable on the black jack table which only shows how involved the team became in the experienceThe House and its surroundings are simply breathtaking Julia – a truly one-off experience which everyone enjoyed.”

Make your next away day an experience to remember

Hollywood House – Dare to be different

Ashbourne Hall –  Cocktails & coffee

Standlow –  It takes two flints to make a fire
