Having just hosted our very own away day, we wanted to share our knowledge on some amazing venues outside of London that are perfect for hosting a company offsite.

Wellness focused retreat

This stunning property is just 30 minutes from London Liverpool St in Hertfordshire. Within 55 acres of parkland, the beautiful Grade II listed mansion is more than just a place to sleep. Alongside 140 bedrooms sits a growing farm, two farm-to-table restaurants and three bars. An interactive bakery, a cinematic screening room, a pottery studio, music and art rooms and fitness studios offer so much opportunity to get creative. Make the most of the incredible grounds and organise a team building activity; from a retro sports day or a boot camp, to a group treasure hunt, the possibilities are endless.

The Lakes

Allow colleagues to reunite after a year of absence at this luxury location in the Cotswolds. With outdoor activities, a spa and acres of greenery, it is the perfect backdrop to reconnect with your teams. Make the most of the incredible lake, and go canoeing, kayaking, paddle-boarding or fishing. It really does offer the most stunning surroundings. Or if you want to get the adrenaline pumping then organise for your colleagues to experience the zip-wire. Turn an ordinary day into a thrilling away day. Hire some bikes or try the air rifles, trapeze, horse riding, sailing, or dune buggies!

Mansion House

Nestled in 250 acres of Berkshire parkland, this mansion house hotel was first built in the 1560s. Following a £20 million pound restoration the hotel has been completely transformed. The historic property now offers 87 guest-rooms, including 12 luxury suites, and a number of event spaces. The dedicated conference building is completed with state of the art AV. There is a PGA-standard gold course for organising a golf tournament. You can also utilise the outdoor activity course, fully equipped gym or indoor swimming pool within the grounds.
