The Perfect Backdrop For Your Event
Set within a private estate of 20 acres of landscaped naturalistic grounds that include an aromatic herb garden and a long lake with pontoon and boathouse and surrounded by the rolling chalk hills of the beautiful West Berkshire countryside, Sheepdrove is an event venue like no other – sustainable, authentic, natural, modern but with a heart. Less than two hours from London yet situated high atop the Lambourn Downs, Sheepdrove is both in the middle of nowhere but at the centre of southern England. A choice of unique rooms and diverse interior and exterior event spaces deliver a flexible, versatile location that lends itself to all kinds of corporate and private events, including conferences, presentations, activity days, corporate retreats, music recitals, private parties, vehicle demonstrations and much more. Eco-friendly onsite accommodation can be found in the form of three converted farm buildings. Sheepdrove’s event venue is certified net zero carbon in operation and awarded Green Meetings and Green Tourism Gold Awards by leading independent sustainable business certification Green Tourism.
Carbon Net Zero
Sheepdrove is harvesting heat from the earth with a ground source heat pump. A buried network of pipes captures this geothermal heat and uses it as renewable energy to power the central heating and cooling systems in our sustainable events venue. The whole system is powered by renewable electricity from our two wind turbines and 900 solar panels reducing on-site emissions to net zero.
