The Clarenco-owned company, which owns a selection of unique UK properties ranging from Scottish castles and historic manor houses to sea forts and riverside cottages, is adding conference and meeting facilities, dining space and leisure amenities.

Ackergill Tower, a 15th century Scottish castle will open additional conference space by December following a stables conversion. Whilst Plas Cilybebyll, an 18-capacity manor house in Swansea is turning disused garages into an Orangery dining facility for 120 - due for completion by May.

Beaucastle, a Venetian Gothic-style house in Worcestershire, which sleeps 14, is transforming a derelict coach-house into a dining facility for 120 by September. And Morley Old Hall in Norfolk is converting two barns into additional conference and dining space, also due for completion by September.

The investment programme was announced at The Mill in Bedfordshire, which is doubling its events space by July with a double barn conversion that will offer dining for up to 100 guests.

"We are focusing on opening the Mill up to the corporate market later this year and we’re looking for industry partners to help achieve this goal," said Amazing Retreats business development manager Steve Hamilton. "We believe that everything we offer and organise in our retreats is unique so we want to work with events industry partners that can offer the same level of offer on our behalf."
