News and Media: PGL Liddington - opening in 2010!

18 June 2009

PGL Liddington

We are delighted to announce the purchase of our latest centre, PGL Liddington, near Swindon. Formerly a training centre and more recently a hotel, this is an outstanding purpose-built facility.

Accommodation & Group Facilities

The site has 192 modern en suite bedrooms and this centre will lead the way in the education market guaranteeing a maximum of 4 students per room and all teachers in single rooms. There are over 30 seminar and conference rooms and these will provide every group with indoor space for evening ents and classroom based programmes.

The Great Outdoors!

There are over 150 acres of grounds where we have built the most comprehensive range of activities in the market, making full use of the natural landscape including the woodland and two lakes. The site boasts changing rooms, a pavilion, gym, all weather pitch and 11 full size football pitches!

Where is it?

The location just off the M4, means that the site is easily accessible from much of the UK - particularly the Midlands, South West and London. The excellent existing infrastructure allows us to get up and running very quickly and we started welcoming our first guests in April 2010.

Come and See the centre for yourself!

We run regular previews throughout the year so you can come and see Liddington for yourself. Check preview dates here>
