Countryside Centre

Hello and "welcome" to the Countryside Centre.

We are able to facilitate a wide variety of groups from corporate functions to social gatherings within our large meeting room, measuring 19.5m x 7.5m. This facility is available to hire throughout the week, including weekends.

The centre is fully accessible to wheelchair users. Private toilets, access to a basic storage area and sinks are also available and easily accessible.

We have 16 rectangular tables and a large number of chairs which can be arranged within the room as required.

Layout affects the capacity but we are happy to discuss your requirements on an individual basis prior to booking.

COVID-19 interventions

We continue to encourage awareness of the spread of Covid or other infections and support our visitors by maintaining the following measures:

  • hand sanitiser at entrance point and inside room

  • on-site risk assessments.

It is the responsibility of the meeting facilitator to ensure any necessary measures are adhered to by their attendees, should government advice and guidance change.

Refreshments

You are welcome to bring your own packed lunches or arrange an outside caterer. There is an on-site cafe only a short walk from the centre offering a limited range of sandwiches, sausage rolls, hot and cold drinks, chocolate bars, cakes and ice cream.

Payment method

We usually invoice you after the event has taken place. If you prefer to pay beforehand or on the day, please let us know.

Car parking

There is very limited car parking adjacent to the Countryside Centre solely for use by facilitators and disabled drivers. Please ask all other drivers to use our large main car park, although on-site staff cannot guarantee there will be sufficient space for all attendees.

All delegates will need to purchase a ticket from the pay and display machines in the main car park.

Fees are £2 for up to six hours and payment can be made either by cash or via the Phone & Pay App using code 2733. Information on how to pay can be found here.

For events likely to exceed this period, attendees will also need to clearly display the 'Car Park Extension Ticket' in their windscreen alongside the £2 ticket to avoid possible fines.

For further information, please email parkingservices@huntingdonshire.gov.uk.
