A great venue where you can get away form it all. Shepherds Dene is only 40 minutes from Newcastle or Durham but in a world of its own. A wonderful Edwardian house in the arts and craft style, it is largely unchanged and somewhere to relax and get away form it all. Dont worry, we have excellent home cooking, a well stocked bar, a volleyball court and the latest audio visual and wifi facilities. But our guests come back again and again for seminars, away days, team building or just to study and reflect becuase we've bottled peace and quiet and will look after you.
