We can accommodate up to 38 people across 9 bedrooms, with a maximum of 5 beds per room in a mix of single and bunk-style beds. Each room is uniquely decorated, giving them that personal touch you wouldn’t find in a hotel and they are maintained to a very high standard to ensure maximum comfort and cleanliness.
Our vision when designing the residential quarters was to create a space that is comfortable , warm and welcoming with a relaxed atmosphere that really gives the feeling of a home away from home. That’s why we have a large residential lounge, which is exclusively open to overnight guests, featuring lots of big, comfy sofa, as well as various means of entertainment to keep everyone happy.

We are flexible in that we can pretty much personalise your visit to your needs, whether it is adjusting meal times to fit in with your itinerary or giving you access to our ports facilities for some last minute training before the big match. All you have to do is ask.

Thank you for your wonderful hospitality. The girls plus Adrian, David and myself absolutely loved being based at your Centre and have told everyone if they need somewhere for a team it is ideal.
I am the manager of the Australian Junior Women’s Handball Team and we have just spent 14 wonderful days at the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Residential Centre. I, the coach and the girls would like to thank Ann and her team for their hospitality they showed us while there.
I can highly recommend this centre for large groups. Ann made sure our needs were met especially with our Vegan team member. Kim Gardener
I would just like to thank you and your staff for your fantastic planning, support and hospitality. We all had a great weekend and were able to achieve what we set out to achieve with our students. The students loved their stay there and I would be very keen to book again with you this time next year.
Thank you again
Mill green school
Thank you so very very much for looking after our guests from Stuttgart so well. We are extremely focused on giving opportunities to students from both our schools and we enjoy a very special relationship. Thank you for your support all week and please pass that on to all your staff. The week was a huge success and has further enhanced the learning, understanding and relationships between our 2 schools, developing new opportunities for friendships between special needs students in England and Germany.
We have used the Peace Centre for a number of years to host our volunteer training. The staff are always incredibly accommodating to our needs, whether they be dietary requirements or safety and security. Anne always give a thorough induction and it is clear that she, and the other staff, are very passionate about the space and it’s upkeep. Overall, the venue is peaceful, clean, comfortable, and accessible and we’ve never had any problems. We will continue to use it in the future!
Staying at the Peace Centre for our two-day and four-day residential trainings has been a pleasure. The young people we work with consistently comment on what a comfortable, warm and friendly, as well as professional and clean venue it is. The food is fantastic, with a great variety of homemade meals, and our staff always look forward to our meals there! The venue is decorated beautifully to a very high standard, and it’s a very relaxing place to spend your evenings as well. Security is top of our priorities, and the Peace Centre has 24 hour security with a security system, which completely suits our needs. The location is easy to get to by car, taxi, bus or walking and is so close to the centre of Warrington whilst also feeling like it is in the countryside. We always look forward to our time at the Peace Centre, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable, warm environment in which to conduct your activities.”
Room & conference hire
It was a pleasure to be able to hold another meeting at the Peace Centre this week and I must thank you for the very professional, and unobtrusive, attention we received from the team.
When ‘housekeeping’ runs smoothly it allows those of us running the meeting to concentrate on the programme.
Thanks for the professional standard you provided as always. Everyone seems to have enjoyed the events, the food was great and we felt well looked after. Your team of volunteers do a sterling job as well.
NHS 5 Boroughs Partnership
We will definitely be using you in the future as the staff who attended a recent meeting there were raving about your facilities and the friendly staff.

I just wanted to drop you a line on behalf of our team to thank you and the two lovely ladies who looked after us yesterday for all your help. You were all so organised, efficient and friendly it was a pleasure to hold our meeting at the TP JB Peace Centre. I thought the catering and facilities were great too and the day went really well.
The Peace Centre is a professional and slick operation and well organised. The facilities are great with ample parking, great room and we had all we needed for the day. This should be our venue of choice for any Blue hat Training we have in the north. James Millward
