The Timber Barn has a good size banquet hall that can be used as a central point for all of the houses. Corporate team building and think tank usage has been used for companies as diverse as BDO, BP and BBC. The furniture can be re-arranged to suit usage and we can provide local instructors in diverse disciplines or simply guide a local walk or run. The isolated nature of the House on the Brooks and The Mill House are available for very discreet meetings.
