Talk to us about your booking
We offer highly bespoke bookings for our corporate guests. We can cater for up to 22 (18 beds in 11 separate bedrooms + three sitting rooms) across our corporate suite of three interconnected cottages.
Prices are based on the number of delegates / bedrooms / cottages booked. Please ring Jean on 01827 880448 for details and to discuss your requirements.
Our communal space is perfect for board meetings; and we can supply catering, flexible accommodation and organised activities as required. Simply let us know who will be attending and whether you’d prefer to rent our individual one, two, three or four bedroomed cottages or get everyone together in our super-spacious 11-bedroom cottage.
We provide all the equipment you need to create your own meals; and many of our corporate retreat guests tell us that cooking together is great for team-building. But if you prefer, we can serve you delicious formal meals in The Refectory or deliver mouth-watering meals ready to serve yourself.
