November 2006   


You don't have to be in London to do big business. Swap the hustle and bustle of the city for a corporate retreat, where inspiration, action and decision-making can be undertaken with a breath of fresh air and all the trimmings you need to impress clients and colleagues. 

It's time to step ahead of the game and prove that your company stands out from the rest. Hold boardroom meetings in historic or contemporary interiors fully equipped with presentation technology. Stay in exquisite suites that blend both traditional and modern décor with broadband connections and all mod-cons needed by high profile executives. But it's not all about the boardroom and the books. Successful business is about networking, team building, country pursuits and banquets. Which is why our corporate retreats provide a unique platter of activities tailored to your needs. Golf, clay pigeon shooting, active adventures, tennis or relaxing laps in the pool are there for the taking, and in the evening private chefs will conjure up delicious menus from the freshest local fare. So whether you've got half a dozen execs that need pampering, or 30 colleagues that want a blast, we've got the perfect corporate retreat that will show your clients you mean business.

All properties are available on an exclusive use base. For a further selection of our corporate retreats checkout
