A million miles from the usual office based business and the hotel type corporate hospitality, Orchard View brings you a fresh alternative for focused away days and entertaining of those very important clients. They’ll certainly thank you for this; fresh air, spectacular views, wide open countryside and plenty of things to see and do in the local area, with some utterly charming country pubs and attractive market towns within just a few miles.
Get your corporate guests out and about in this beautiful part of Somerset; take them to a cider farm - Wilkins Cider Farm, Burrow Hill Cider and Bere Cider Company are all close by. There’s some good coarse fishing locally, at Thorney Lakes near Muchelney or Viaduct Fishery near Somerton, and for a round of golf there’s Long Sutton Golf Club. If you’re looking for activities, have donkey rides on the beach at Weston-Super-Mare, walk or cycle the River Parret Trail (hire bikes in the summer from Parrett Trail Bikes in Langport), go over to the Mendips for rock climbing or caving at Cheddar Gorge and Caves, or further afield on Exmoor you’ll find plenty of opportunities for coasteering along the rugged cliffs, mountain biking or kayaking. Spend a day on the Quantock Hills pony trekking, swinging on the high and low ropes or wall climbing at Cannington Adventure Centre. You can even book up some in-house entertainment with a life drawing class, pottery painting or cake decorating – see our Things to Do page.
Show them the sights; stroll the vibrant streets of Glastonbury, climb the Tor, go for a bite to eat at the Who’d a Thought It Inn; go to Wells and take in the glorious cathedral, the Bishop’s Palace and the medieval cobbled Vicars’ Close. Go to Taunton, amble around Vivary Park, catch a film on the big screen, or some ten pin bowling.
You can even call in professional caterers to cook up a delicious feast or serve you champagne and canapes, or if you want to take your guests out to eat, we can recommend the Halfway House at Pitney, the Swan at Wedmore, the Sheppey at Godney, or the King Alfred at the bottom of Burrow Mump.
Some great ways to pass the time, foster team spirits, seal some deals and most of all, enjoy a relaxing corporate break in the beautiful Somerset countryside.
