Nestled amidst the picturesque landscapes of Wales, the Celtic Manor Resort stands as a beacon of luxury and tranquility, inviting guests to immerse themselves in a world of opulence and unparalleled hospitality.

Some of our team were welcomed on a truly 5* show round of this prestigious venue, as well as some of the other venues within the Celtic Collection. 

This esteemed resort, located in the Usk Valley near Newport, has carved its niche as a premier destination for those seeking a perfect blend of leisure, recreation, and relaxation, ideal for your next corporate offsite.

Just an hour and half train from London Paddington, we were across the border in no time! 

Elegant Accommodation:

The Celtic Manor Resort boasts a range of luxurious accommodations that cater to the diverse tastes of its discerning guests. From lavish suites with panoramic views of the surrounding landscapes to elegantly appointed rooms exuding warmth and comfort, and a range of luxurious self-catering Hunter Lodges set within the spectacular Welsh countryside, each stay promises a unique and unforgettable experience. The resort's commitment to detail is evident in the tasteful decor, plush furnishings, and modern amenities that ensure a restful and rejuvenating stay.

Culinary Delights:

The culinary offerings at the Celtic Manor Resort are a gastronomic delight. From fine dining establishments to casual eateries, the resort caters to every palate with a diverse range of delectable dishes. Whether savouring locally inspired Welsh cuisine or relishing international flavors, guests can embark on a culinary journey that tantalises their taste buds. We were lucky enough to sample dishes from each of the Resort's restaurants, finishing with a spectacular breakfast at the exclusive 'Steak on Six', offering uninterrupted views of the valleys.

World-Class Golfing:

For enthusiasts of the sport, the Celtic Manor Resort is synonymous with world-class golf. The resort is home to three championship golf courses, including the renowned Twenty Ten Course, which played host to the 2010 Ryder Cup. Golfers can test their skills on meticulously manicured fairways while soaking in the breathtaking vistas of the Welsh countryside. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a novice, the resort offers golfing experiences that cater to all skill levels and offers an easy add on to any corporate event.

Spa and Wellness Retreat:

At the heart of the Celtic Manor Resort lies an oasis of serenity – the Forum Spa. Boasting an array of indulgent treatments, state-of-the-art facilities, and a tranquil ambiance, the spa provides an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Guests can unwind with therapeutic massages, rejuvenating facials, and holistic wellness rituals that pamper the body, mind, and soul.

Corporate Activities:

The resort features a range of novice-friendly activities, including adventure golf, a treetop high ropes course, cooking classes, gin tasting, and clay pigeon shooting to name a few. Companies can create lasting memories while enjoying the scenic beauty and engaging in a variety of recreational pursuits. More than ever before, team-building is considered to be an essential tool for successful organisations looking to effect change and deliver results through the improved motivation and productivity of their employees at all levels.

We were treated to some truly out of the box activities during our stay, including a tutored beef wellington cookery class (which guests can take home in a chilled box at the end of their stay), to a guided gin and cheese tasting!
