Owned and run by Kent County Council, Oakwood House is a superb Victorian mansion set in its own grounds in Oakwood Park, near Maidstone in Kent. Just 10 minutes from the M20 and with ample free on-site car parking facilities, Oakwood is the ideal venue for your conference or training needs.

The newly built John Wigan room, with facilities for up to 300 delegates, is elegant and spacious with plenty of natural light and boasts air-conditioning, the latest audio-visual technology and all the modern comforts you would expect.

A full range of audio visual equipment is available on site. In addition, we are able to provide bespoke solutions and full production support if required. We offer free broadband WiFi access throughout the building and externally on the patio area, allowing visitors and guests to stay in touch whilst they are out of the office.

The Courtyard bar and restaurant is available for a pre-meeting coffee with handmade cakes and biscuits. Alternatively, why not relax after your event with a cold beer or glass of wine chosen from our extensive list.

We strive to provide the very best in service and standards and will ensure that your training event, meeting or conference runs smoothly. An experienced conference organiser will be available to you from your initial booking, through to being on hand to assist you throughout the day.
