Discover how Villa Farm can make your next event unforgettable

Executive Meetings

Our cottages can offer a light-filled area with the addition of on-site accommodation. The rooms can be transformed into your on-location meeting space, tailored to your personal preferences so you can focus on the business at hand.  The rooms can be arranged to your comfort and to ensure practicality.


Planning an event can entail many details and organisation – from catering to guest list and more. Villa Farm can ensure your next event in York is a great success, ready to manage as many or as few of the details as you’d like. We can help determine the types of equipment you need, source and provide the technology for you, and will take care of set-up/break-down.

Product Launches

Launch your new product in a memorable location. The grounds at Villa Farm can provide an ideal setting to host your event. We can work with local and talented chefs to determine the best meal planning option, from our tea and coffee stations with drinks and snacks, deli lunches to a three course meal and more. We have no set packages you are restricted to, we work around you.

Team Building

We can help you deliver corporate team building that exceeds expectations. Team building has tangible benefits, as well as the obvious feel good factor that your team experiences. The extensive garden areas offer plenty of space for you to co-ordinate an activity of your choice. Located just 30 seconds drive from Villa Farm is the Web Adventure Park with a Wired High Ropes Challenge. This brand new attraction is a complete first for the area and is a great place to visit for a team building day out. Containing 22 elements of ranging difficulty, we can assure it will challenge even the most fearless adventurers.

Away Day

Villa Farm can provide you with the venue for a corporate away day, giving you the opportunity to build trust and relationships with your employees. Take the team away from the office and you’ll be amply rewarded. The little extras and activities help bring your team together. A cupcake decorating class, spa treatments or even cocktails overlooking the pond and grounds are all available on site at Villa Farm. Contact us to discover the possibilities for your bespoke event.


Whatever the occasion, the Villa Farm team can offer a tailor-made service to suit your requirements; from family celebrations to charity ball. With our spacious gardens, suitable for a marquee of your choice, or our on-site cottages ideal for smaller intimate events, Villa Farm can be used in various ways to create the perfect experience for you. Our peaceful setting is non-the-less easily accessible and less than 4 miles north of York City Centre.
