Yarnfield Park's Staffordshire location

Yarnfield Park was launched as a commercial training and conference centre in 2010 having previously been the national training centre for BT. Over the last 5 years Yarnfield Park has undergone a comprehensive programme of renewal with improvements to bedrooms, public spaces, meeting spaces and facilities.

It now offers one of the fastest free dedicated internet solutions of any conference or training centre in the UK. The 300Mbps superfast connection allows up to 800 devices to be connected at one time.

In early 2015 the venue announced that a further multi-million pound programme of improvements would shortly commence including upgrades to the bar, restaurant, meeting spaces and bedrooms.
