Accommodation Description:From: £45.00
The Priory enjoys a prime town centre location and yet still benefits from its own 19 acre parkland setting. The contrast in environment is striking, to one side is the quaint market town of Hitchin and to the other acres of secluded parkland allowing conference delegates and guests the best of both worlds. The grounds are ideal for outdoor activities of every kind.
Originally a Carmelite monastery built in 1317, Hitchin Priory has progressively evolved over the centuries and now gracefully combines a mosaic of ages. The Priory helps you forget the hustle and bustle of a busy business schedule, allowing you to enjoy distraction-free meetings and events with a clear head.Arched Cloisters, wooden panelled walls and detailed architraves all add to the character of this truly remarkable building. The main house offers gloriously decorated rooms ideal for private functions.
Hitchin Priory offers 55 bedrooms all with en-suite facilities..
