For those who don't know, Worton Park is a delightful hamlet just outside Oxford, between Cassington and Yarnton. It is an idyllic rural oasis, but also very easy to reach from major roads in the area.
The Blue Room at Worton Park provides a great venue for holding workshop or classes. There is plenty of space for up to 60, but easily adapts for smaller groups with a wonderful new conservatory which has plenty of natural light. The conservatory opens out onto a pool-side patio, which is lovely for refreshments or activities outdoors in summer.
