Space to Think – Meeting rooms at the JG Graves Woodland Discovery Centre

It’s just four miles from the centre of Sheffield, but JG Graves Woodland Discovery Centre couldn’t feel further from the city.

Nestled within 142 hectares of ancient woodland and surrounded by a friendly community of craftspeople, rangers and volunteers, it’s a beautiful, peaceful place.

Our centre accommodates up to 80 guests across two distinctive spaces: Hector’s House – a charming L-shaped, timber-framed building, kept warm by a log burning stove.

The Sycamore Suite – an airy, sycamore-clad room with a cracking view of the woods.

Beyond the meeting rooms, there’s the woods to play with. Bring a change of scenery to your breakout sessions with a quick jog to clear the head, a long woodland walk to get ideas flowing, or a relaxing craft session with one of our resident makers.


Each booking includes unlimited coffee, tea and biscuits. We’ll arrange a buffet to suit your requirements, with fresh, locally sourced food prepared by St Mary’s, a charity that supports the local community.


We can support your meeting or event with our range of technical equipment, including a colour projector and screen, free wifi in each room, and a laptop available to hire.
