If you are looking for an excellent venue for creative sessions, away days or even a confidential meeting, then look no further! Tucked away at the back of Long Ashton, just 3 miles from Clifton, 4 miles from Temple Meads and 5 miles from the M5 - the Ideas Lodge is a perfect location for senior teams of up to 8 people. There is free, safe parking and inspirational views. It's light, airy and a complete contrast to the normal office environment. A working day with a difference! A real breath of fresh air!

Quiet, private, and easy to get to. 

Inspired setting to help your ideas flow and new perspectives grow. 

The Ideas Lodge provides the perfect spot for you and your team to get the creative juices going, chew through ideas and develop new strategic plans - away from the busyness of the office. You can take the time and space to work on, not in, your business. You are guaranteed to see it all from a totally different perspective!

Think big. Think clearly. Think Smart.

This is a quiet meeting room with a mini kitchen and bathroom, and you can configure the layout to suit your needs. There is also plenty of space outside where you can stretch, walk and re-energise between sessions, with the added beauty of the pool. WJ Nichols says 'Our brains are hardwired to react positively to water ... to calm and connect us and to help increase innovation and insight'.
Tea and coffee are provided and we can recommend external catering arrangements.



I just love the Ideas Lodge. So close to Clifton and yet it feels like a million miles away.  Our monthly meetings here have been so incredibly useful - the space, the view, the beautiful gardens, all help focus the mind for us to consider what’s important, away from the business, with no interruption. Thank you Mary for being so welcoming - it always feels like a treat and the coffee’s delicious!

Mary’s Ideas Lodge is a haven of peace and inspiration situated overlooking the natural pool

and whole valley. I have worked there with clients for two years doing Colour and Style classes

and practically it is so easy with the comfortable, adaptable space, small kitchen facility and easy free parking.

The Ideas Lodge was the perfect spot for our team day ‘away from it all’.  The room worked perfectly – we threw open the windows and had that wonderful view, using bits of the garden to wander and ponder. It really works brilliantly for this sort of event – getting away from the office and being able to talk and think more freely.
