Situated within 5 acres of tranquil leafy grounds, St Anne’s enjoys a unique atmosphere in which to hold any conference, dinner or special event.


Philosophy Conference

“Just a quick thank you to you and your staff for another great Conference. As always the food was excellent and the accommodation and facilities perfect. See you next year.”


Oxford Brookes University

“Just wanted to send you a thank you for all you did for our Conference and its participants.  The feedback so far suggests it was very successful and the food was much enjoyed along with the comfort and ambience. I would recommend St Anne’s to anyone.”


Iris Murdoch Conference

"The conference went perfectly and was greatly enjoyed by all delegates. Much gratitude is due to you and your team, to the catering staff who ran all the refreshments, lunches and conference dinner so smoothly, to the porters who made us welcome, to the scouts who were up so early making everywhere so clean and tidy, and to all who helped in the background with bookings and queries. You have been endlessly patient with us and unfailingly cheerful and helpful as well as efficient -- we are very grateful indeed and glad we could celebrate Iris Murdoch's centenary at St Anne's which was so significant in her life.
Please can you convey our thanks to all the staff at St Anne's (which is clearly a happy place to work from chatting to various people) and also to the Principal and her PA for making the portrait accessible to us. It was so kind of you to take me up to see it yesterday.
We have happy memories and lots of photographs! Oh and thank you for laying on the perfect weather too!”

Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach

“I wanted to express our thanks once again for an excellent venue for our Teacher Summer School. The teachers were very complimentary about the rooms, breakfast and lunch. Thank you very much to your catering staff who were welcoming, friendly and professional throughout.
I look forward to working with you again in the future.”


Faculty of Philosophy

“I wanted to write to say thank you for your efforts for the Philosophy Faculty summer party last month.
Thank you too to the catering team on the day who were very helpful, friendly, and attentive.
Our Faculty had an enjoyable time and it was a lovely end to a busy academic year. I was very glad that we could have the marquee in the end, too, as it was a lovely setting.”

Reading Mahana Scripture Conference

"Thank you so much for all your help with our conference. Your support has been greatly appreciated. We received such a positive response this weekend - everyone was impressed with the Tsuzuki facilities and the technical side went smoothly. I think it was probably the first hybrid conference in Buddhist studies (at least the only one we've all heard of) and has set a high bar for similar events in the future."
