Teambuilding, Change management, Meetings

We supply the houses…you SUPPLY THE people!

The private and tranquil atmosphere that our corporate event houses provide are an effective alternative to a hotel. A Big House is ideal for your corporate hospitality venue or for a small exclusive meeting, away day or training event.

Corporate away days

Every person, every team and every business is different – that’s why your time here will always be exactly as you want it. You don’t have to follow a hotel type schedule – breakfast at lunch-time if that works for you. A big house is an informal setting and once you arrive, you are greeted and shown around – if that’s all you need, we will leave you in complete seclusion.

Meeting spaces

BIG houses have great spaces for your team to work all together or in smaller groups. Sofas or around a table, you choose; your whole experience at a big house can be completely fluid.  Tell us what you need and it can all be here for your arrival.

Managing Change

Focus on your team in complete privacy, with no distractions in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere away from the office. The informality of a big house creates a positive and inspiring atmosphere where you can make great strides towards the goals you want to accomplish. We can  put you in touch with management consultants if you are looking for some specific help during your stay.


At many of our houses, we can arrange activities to suit any kind of event or party. We have spent time researching and finding an excellent range of suppliers to provide the best experiences for you. Some are just for fun, but others can have a more serious team building intention behind them.
