Managing Director Tim Chudley speaks to Michael Kennedy from www.myvenues.co.uk about what makes Sundial so special and our award success
Who We Are
Experts in Events
We are a multi-award winning group with three dedicated meeting venues, a team building company and a venue finding agency. Family-owned and run, we have 50 years experience in the industry and pride ourselves on being the experts in events. We have been recognised for achievements in a wide range of areas including customer service, value for money, facilities, food and also industry leadership.
The Sundial story began back in 1964 when Diana Chudley, a post-war entrepreneur and her husband, Michael, bought a run-down country house in Northamptonshire (Highgate House) and transformed it into a home for their nine children, whilst also running it as a guest house. It went on to become one of the first country house conference centres of its kind in the UK. The family later went on to acquire two additional country venues in Warwickshire and Surrey. Today, all three venues continue to be run by members of the Chudley family.
We have three beautiful country house venues; Barnett Hill in Surrey, Highgate House in Northamptonshire and Woodside in Warwickshire. Each has been independently recognised for offering excellent facilities and delivering first-class customer service for both business and leisure customers.
Coupled with award-winning dining, accommodation and leisure facilities, the venues are ideal for all occasions. Each venue is set in tranquil English countryside and all are easily accessible from major motorways and railways stations.
Our team building company, Teamscapes, specialises in using the experiential learning model of team building (learning by doing) to help simulate workplace issues in a non-threatening environment. Activities include indoor, outdoor and extreme events which are all designed to help individuals improve their self awareness and team effectiveness.
Teamscapes is fully measureable and promises to deliver a return on your training investment.
We also have a free venue finding agency, SOS.
At SOS, we can not only help find a suitable venue anywhere in the world, but can also assist customers with corporate accommodation, event management and team building.
