Whether it’s corporate rewards or a few days away team building, Frog Street is an idyllic place to stay and a great base if you’re thinking of getting out for group activities. How about go-karting at Mansell Raceway, high ropes at Vivary Adventure Centre, golf at Oake Manor Golf Club or Taunton & Pickeridge Golf Club, or clay pigeon shooting at Shalden Shooting School? Or you could go over to Lyme Regis for a mackerel or deep sea fishing trip. Get those heads together, coming up with solutions, fostering harmonious working relationships, and ultimately, having fun.
You could treat everyone to a day at the races at Taunton Racecourse, a match at the County Cricket Ground, or a night out at the bowling alley. Go to Bishop’s Lydeard, hop on the steam train with the West Somerset Railway and pootle through the countryside to Watchet or Dunster where you can get off and go and see the medieval castle. You can even book a whole carriage to yourselves and have refreshments on board!
Take a look at our Extras page and you’ll see plenty of inspiration for in-house activities, like life drawing, cocktail classes, dance lessons and pottery painting. And don't worry about feeding everyone because you’ll also find details of tried and tested caterers who can come in and cook whatever you like, be it a five course dinner, or champagne and canapes.
If you'd rather go out for dinner you'll be glad to know that there are plenty of good country pubs nearby and you know what they say, when in Rome… we recommend the Five Dials, The Firehouse, The Farmers Arms and the Hatch Inn just up the road. Otherwise, pop into town - The Bank and The Willow Tree in Taunton are good, and so is Todays Menu in Ilminster; all well worth going to.
