Get out into the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside for your next corporate break; overlooking the Forest of Dean and close to the River Wye, Whitehaven is the ideal base for those ice-breaking team building events, and you'll find plenty of activities to choose from - right on your doorstep you can go nature spotting, walking, cycling, and horse trekking; set your groups a challenge and see who comes out tops. Head into the forest to Forest Adventure Activity Centre or to Wyedean Canoe & Adventure Centre at Symonds Yat for climbing, abseiling, caving, gorge walking or canoeing; try stand up paddle boarding at SUPYOFI on the River Wye at Ye Olde Ferrie Inn, or whizz through the trees on the high ropes course at Go Ape Forest of Dean. All jolly good fun whilst establishing fruitful working relations, but if you fancy something less strenuous opt for an in-house activity such as life drawing or cocktail making; you'll find ideas on our Extras page.
Whitehaven is equally well suited to corporate hospitality; bring a group of key clients to this luxury haven, sleeping 12 in 6 generously sized en suite bedrooms. There's plenty by way of relaxation - big comfy sofas, a big dining table that comfortably seats all (great for meetings), a games room and study, an amazing indoor pool, and outside, a large garden with stunning views, and a heated outdoor dining pavillion.
If you're thinking of taking your guest out for the day, perhpas a historic house or a castle with beautiful gardens will appeal; Newark Park, Berkeley Castle and Lydney Park Spring Gardens are all close by, or give them a falconry experience at the International Centre for Birds of Prey. Book up at a village pub for a laid back lunch; the 16th centry Cock Inn is very close and just a tad further is the Miners at Sling, an award winning gastro pub. Alternatively, book up one of the local caterers on our Extras page and let them come to Whitehaven and create a scrumptious feast for you.
