West Gateshead has a peaceful, semi-rural landscape where it's easy to spend the day getting lost in woodlands and along riversides. Unfortunately it's also tricky to find somewhere to meet privately with clients or to run groups.
Our Old School site in Highfield, Rowlands Gill, is an ideal venue for both one-to-one meetings and group gatherings.
Both rooms have access to our large kitchen. As our site name suggests, the building was once a primary school. The kitchen was used to cook school dinners so you can expect it to be a comfortable and practical size. It's ideal for self-catering events or even running cooking activities. It adjoins the hall via a door and a hatchway that can be raised or lowered as required.
Our office is open from 9am-4.30pm, Monday to Friday but we're happy to discuss staying open later on weekdays and opening on weekends if we have staff available to lock up.
