Impress those important clients, reward your hard working personnel, inspire and motivate your top teams in the unique surroundings of Ilbeare; a house in the country that offers a different kind of corporate away break.

Have a breakfast meeting round the pine topped table in the spacious kitchen, hold an executive pow wow in the elegant dining room, take breakout sessions in the games room, reception hall or sitting room; or take things outside to the sunny patio and gorgeous gardens, or to the cosiness of the Scandinavian style barbecue hut. They say a change is as good as a rest, and this is a complete contrast to the usual business meeting rooms. Ilbeare is relaxed and homely, surrounded by miles of Somerset countryside; your guests can stroll in the 2 acres of grounds, through woodland and along a babbling brook.

Just a few miles away are the beautiful Quantock Hills where you won't be short of team building opportunities; set a hill bagging challenge with photographs of the far reaching views taken from the vantage points, have an electric bike tour, go horse trekking, or head out for the day for more daring pursuits - abseiling, climbing, stallion karting, quad biking or lasertagging. If the weather is too unpredictable, stay at Ilbeare and have team building fun indoors with a craft session, cake decorating, life drawing, or cocktail making. Push back the tables and watch bonds form as your group learn a new dance style - Bollywood, Samba, African Dance, or Flamenco. Mix up your dining with a visit to a nearby pub one evening, and the next have a professional caterer in to cook up a first-class feast.
