For a change from the usual hotel-based corporate breaks, book something different; the unique, inspiring setting of Thorncombe is sure to get the creative juices flowing. It's equally good if you're looking to take key clients away for a few days - they'll like this stylish timber-clad lodge; it's all light and airy, spacious and up to the minute, with high quality finishings.

Thorncombe has an idyllic location at the foot of one of the most dramatic combes in the Quantock Hills. There's a private indoor heated pool and a games area, and well sized bedrooms to sleep 14 people in zip and link beds that can be configured as superkings or singles according to your requirements. Thorncombe can be booked on its own, or with Crowcombe (see Crowcombe and Thorncombe).

There's a very generous living/entertaining room, with a table that comfortably seats 14 people - a fresh setting for any board meeting or brainstorming session; there's a garden with a big patio that can be used for breakouts, and when work is done, for afternoon tea, drinks, or a barbecue.

Don't overlook the team building opportunities - just head up into the hills for fun and adventure - set a hiking challenge, hill bagging, a treasure hunt, go pony trekking, or book a tour of the hills on electric bikes. Further afield you'll find abseiling, climbing, canoeing, kayaking, stallion karting, paintballing, quad biking...the list is endless! See our Extras page for more info, or give us a call and we'll help with recommendations. If your delegates are a fairweather bunch then book an indoor activity where they can form teams and beat the clock at pottery painting, cake decorating, life drawing, or craft making; let them master something new - cocktail making, salsa dancing, or flamenco or street styles! Great ice-breakers and a fantastic way for people to get to know each other and work well together. Show them they're appreciated by taking them out for dinner at one of the nearby pubs, or by bringing in a local caterer to effortlessly knock up a feast fit for a king!
