Whether it’s a few days away team building or corporate hospitality, Dustings ticks all the boxes, with slumber quarters for 16, heaps of space, a games room, cinema room and a hot tub. Plenty to keep everyone happy at base, and lots to do if you want to go out and about or book up some ice breaking activities.
If you’re a golf crazy bunch there are several good golf clubs within easy reach – Oake Manor and Enmore Park have a backdrop of spectacular Somerset countryside, but Vivary Golf Course in Taunton is good too. If you’re booking for one of the local commercial shoots, Dustings is ideal because it’s just a few miles from all of them – and for afterwards there are several excellent places to eat nearby; Podshavers Barn is a very good restaurant just up the road in Bishops Lydeard, and if you prefer a pub, then we can recommend the Farmers Arms at Combe Florey, the New Inn at Halse and the Rising Sun at West Bagborough.
If you make sure your group bring their walking boots you can all go for a hike in the Quantock Hills; a beautiful landscape of steeply wooded combes, wide open heaths and lush green fields. Walk from Dustings to the Pines Café, do some hill bagging – the views from Cothelstone Hill, Lydeard Hill and Wills Neck are staggering. You could explore by bikes (Fennington is on the Taunton Cycle Trail) or on horseback with Quantock Trekking.
If you want to take your corporate guests out, take them to Hestercombe House, stroll around the beautiful gardens and have tea in the courtyard, or for a real taste of Somerset go to Sheppy’s Cider, have a tour of the orchards, do some sampling and buy some of the brew to take home.
Whatever you do, it will be a resounding success; new bonds formed, new deals sealed. Hire one of our approved professional caterers to come in cook a feast or serve you champagne and canapes; some things are worth celebrating.
