Bringing together the best of the School's facilities

Residential Courses

A residential stay at Queen Margaret’s brings together the best of the School’s facilities - excellent accommodation, award-winning catering, well-equipped and versatile meeting spaces - all set within a safe, parkland setting.

There are twelve boarding houses and cottages, each with their own unique style, allowing a wide range of events with a diverse range of group sizes to be catered for.

  • The Cottages - Beds: 7-15 per Cottage

On the fondly-named Main Street, you will find our cottage accommodation: Park Gates, Covers, Gardeners, Stables, Red House Cottage, Taylour Cottage and Carr House. All housing single bedrooms with washbasins and mirrors, these are a popular choice for conference accommodation.

  • Red House - Beds: 42

Starting life as the Escrick Park farmhouse, Red House has maintained its cosy, welcoming feel whilst providing a great base on campus for younger groups. Gather around the upright piano in the sitting room, host a picnic outside on Red House Lawn or finish the day with a cup of cocoa warmed up on the AGA. Dormitories feature a ‘bunk bed’ design and range in size from four to six beds.

  • Winifred Holtby House (Winnie’s) - Beds: 64

A modern, spacious building with matching four-bed dormitories across three floors, Winnie’s can host groups of up to 64 in their entirety. Each dorm sits adjacent to its own private study room, whilst the ground floor common room and kitchen leave plenty of space for socialising and fun on an evening.

  • Cloisters - Beds: 70

Cloisters is home to our twin bedroom accommodation; each room features two cabin beds with modern storage solutions and a beautiful view onto the gardens below. A fully equipped kitchen and living space downstairs are accessible to all rooms in this building, which is located in the centre of the School campus.

For more information and to arrange a viewing, contact us.

Another great event! As ever it is the extra 'small' things that add the finishing touches to the running of our conference and make the whole thing enjoyable for everyone attending.
