The natural gathering place to think, reflect and create

Where do you go when you want some quality thinking and creative development time?

A hidden valley just north of Swansea might not be your first thought. But it’s becoming a place of choice for leaders and teams who want their time out to really count.

We are not your usual corporate venue and only really suit those who want something completely different.

Spacious and comfortable lakeside cabin, homemade food and award-winning Welsh coffee. And of course the alpacas…

So turn off the noise, breathe in the air and step out of your routine to make sense of where you are and see where you are going.


You can hire the Long Room at The Waterside for your event and we will host your day so that it will be both effective and memorable. As one regular client remarks “It’s all about people and place”


We can also work with you to design and facilitate your off-site so that you get the most from your time here. This is with our sister company, Collective Headspace


You are very welcome to join in our ongoing programme at The Waterside from Alpaca Open Days, to retreats and creative events

This is such a special place and we love to share it. Get in touch if we can help you or come along to an event.
