Room & venue hire for schools, youth groups & charities

Debden House's tranquil yet accessible setting on the edge of Epping Forest is the ideal location for hosting events for schools, youth groups and charities. Ideal for staff training days, exam revision stays and educational courses.

The size and layout of grade II listed Debden House makes for a super-flexible location, with hire available for individual rooms, including our large lecture theatre and overnight residential bedrooms. Rooms can be configured to various layouts to suit your requirements.

Food and hospitality are a popular option. Guests enjoy a mix of our buffet lunches, two course evening meals and we can accommodate up to 43 bed B&B options for our larger groups. Various packages are expertly coordinated to meet every need, including exclusive venue hire of the entire house and Cottage Rooms.

During breakouts, or after your event, why not enjoy a coffee, a walk around our peaceful gardens and woodland setting?

No two events are the same, so please call us on 020 8508 3008 today to create your perfect, flexible venue.
