Outside Spaces and Team Building Activities

Our beautifully landscaped gardens, extensive woodland and meadow offer the perfect space to host a memorable outdoor corporate event or fun team building activity. We work closely with an external activity provider and can help you plan a team building day that fulfills your own specific objectives, boosting employee morale and productivity. We can suggest a range of activities and can help you design team building activities from a light-hearted treasure hunt in the woods, volunteering time to assist our rangers or gardeners, through to carefully monitored and debriefed training games spread throughout the estate.
