Finding an inspirational location for your company off-site is never easy. They provide a much-needed change of environment and are a great opportunity to bring your group closer together so choosing the right venue is key!

At Venue Search London, we have an extensive list of trusted venues across the UK that are perfect for these types of events, here are 3 of our favourites….

Chewton Glen
What could be more perfect than a luxury country house hotel and spa. Nestled in the New Forest and just moments from the sea, Chewton Glen is an idyllic venue for a corporate event. Just 2 hours from London and easily reached by road and rail, it’s a retreat in the Hampshire countryside, set up on 130 acres of grounds. Boardroom meetings, sparkling product launches, receptions or private lunches and dinners can all be held in the enchanting walls of this five-star hotel for up to 140 guests. There is ample space for a variety of team activities on the hotels, sweeping grounds, and guests can also enjoy a wide range of unique land-based activities in the beautiful local environs. Spacious accommodation varies to include rooms and suites with their own separate dressing areas and private access, or even a Treehouse. These alternative retreats are the first of their kind in the UK and offer something a little more unusual.

Wilderness Reserve
The landscape of corporate events has changed in recent times and the natural environment of Wilderness Reserve combined with the flexible range of houses and event spaces provides the perfect setting for a more mindful approach to any event. Suffolk is becoming a popular destination for business visitors making Wilderness Reserve the perfect corporate retreat within two hours from London. Their unique country concept and estates are big enough to host hundreds of guests but also intimate enough for small groups. Whatever you have planned, they have a range of spaces, catering options and inspirational activities to suit every occasion – from brainstorming and team building and product launches, Wilderness Reserve is the perfect corporate retreat.

The main event spaces here are Sibton Park and Chapel Barn Estate which can be both booked on an exclusive-use basis comfortably accommodating up to 180 theatre style and up to 90 guests (single occupancy) across its various bedroom types. The largest at Sibton Park is its manor house with 14 beautifully appointed bedrooms.

Chapel Barn on Chapel Barn Estate which really has the ‘wow-factor’ features floor-to-ceiling Crittall windows leading out onto an enclosed outdoor space, perfect for entertaining and outdoor dining. Chapel Barn also features an underground playground featuring a cinema, gym, and an indoor pool.

Heckfield Place
A beautiful Georgian family home lovingly restored to its historic origins; Heckfield Place is at the heart of a bountiful 400-acre estate. Less than an hour from London the estate has been rewoven, connecting house and grounds in this secluded corner of Hampshire. Resolutely natural, elegantly evolving, this is a living place centred on sustainability and a forward- thinking view on the relationship with the land.

Heckfield Place is available for exclusive use - allowing for the private use of the house, it's 45 bedrooms, two restaurants and Pleasure Grounds making the house your home. The venue boasts a number of beautiful rooms and gardens for dinners, cocktail parties and meetings for up to 100 guests, including a stunning 67 seater screening room which is hidden underground. Heckfield Place truly is a world-class five-star idyllic country retreat that will certainly provide the “wow” factor for your next off-site event.
