Huntsham Court: Spectacular by Day and by Night

Far from the 9 to 5

We’re always rambling on about how amazing Huntsham is for corporate retreats. Yet what many people don’t realise is how far away from being 9 to 5 the retreats are. Go to many places and you arrive early and leave the same day – but here at the manor we offer the full 24 hour experience, allowing participants to live in our home away from home by day and by night. We emerge you in the house and its activities, for a retreat that is nothing like anything else available.

Day Time Activities

Whilst there is much to do in the grounds, there’s also many chances to explore the nearby Devon area to make use of some amazing local companies:

  • Range Rover Experiences – want to experience some serious driving around the Devon countryside? Want to see who’s the best driver, or the quickest around a course? Take it off-road and test everyone’s driving skills with this Range Rover experience: http://www.westcountry.landroverexperience.co.uk/index.html.

  • Quad Biking – Found just off the nearby M5, Quadworld offers the simplest of pleasures, zooming around a racing track. There’s always a member of staff who says they are not competitive, but you’ll quickly see they really are as they pick up speed. For details visit: http://www.quadworld.co.uk/

  • Paintballing – Again, not far off the M5, the UCZ Paintball centre is a great place to allow the team to let off some steam. We’re sure the different departments will work together to be victorious. But who will be Paintball champion? Check them out here: http://www.ucz.info/locations_exeter.php
  • Fishing – How about slowing the pace down a bit and allowing the team to put their feet up? For those who have fished before and for those new to it, the local Tiverton company John Dawson Fly Fishing (http://www.johndawson.co.uk/) is here to set the team up for a fishing session.

Evening Sessions – all available in the house grounds

  • Fencing, Archery, Pistol Shooting & Laser Clay Shooting – Always popular here at Huntsham. We recommend Bird Hill Days – http://birdshilldays.com/. Available to be set up at the house, these activities make a fun and competitive may to unwind in the late afternoon.

  • Massages, hair and beauty treatments – We all long to be pampered, and the grand rooms at Huntsham make the perfect destination to do so. Put your feet up, relax, and walk away feeling like a new person! We recommend a couple of suppliers including Finishing Touch, Andrea Russell and Debra of Rosewood Beauty, details via our Huntsham Court website: http://www.huntshamcourt.co.uk/wedding-venue-in-devon-inspiration/things-to-do/

Night Time Escapes

  • Wine tasting – Because…wine! We recommend using www.jollyvintner.co.uk/ – ideal to turn a meal or a celebration into an excuse to try a range of drinks and pick some lovely bottles to take away with you.
  • Dancing Lessons – Who claims to have the best moves, who has two left feet, who does the typical “Dad Dance”? So many questions can be answered by dance lessons. Bring out the team’s flare with group activities from Step In Time Dance Studio: http://www.stepintimedancestudio.co.uk/

  • Parties – Pick a theme, bring the drink, set up the bar, arrange the food with local suppliers and let everyone let their hair down after hitting targets and reaching goals. We have no corkage fees, the house is yours to do as you wish, time to throw the perfect office party.
  • Accommodation – After it all, the bedrooms welcome you in with cosy beds and unique interiors. It’s time to relax and lay in, before breakfast awaits in the morning and you start all over again.

Far from the 9 to 5 routine, a corporate retreat to Huntsham Court is a round the clock experience, and anything but boring and familiar. They are as amazing as you make them, as exciting or as relaxing as you need, as tailored to your group as it’s possible to get. Contact us now to arrange yours!
