Bring your workplace into nature 

Spending time in nature can reduce stress, calm anxiety, boost your mood and increase clarity - all the key elements for promoting creativity and wellbeing.

We provide a safe, relaxed yet professional atmosphere for you so you can totally immerse yourself in the outdoors.

All corporate packages are tailored to suit your organisation, its goals and your team and can run from half a day to overnight and multi-day. We can cater for groups of between 6 and 15 people. Please get in touch if you have a group larger than this as with some creativity, a solution can be found.
