Welcome to Ammerdown

Imagine a Conference and Retreat Centre nestling in woods next to a Stately Home, surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens and parkland, with an exquisitely beautiful chapel in its midst. The whole place is steeped in peace and tranquillity. No traffic noise, only birdsong! Yet, it is only 12 miles from Bath and is easy of access, with ample free car parking on site.

This amazing place is the Ammerdown Centre!

The venue with a difference
