The way in which corporate away days have evolved over recent years means that forward thinking companies require something different, something that allows several different aspects of the away day to be fulfilled in one location.

Birdsgrove House is a great advocate of the ‘something different’ and is a firm believer in possibilities. With this in mind, we have created an environment that allows the house and grounds to be used exclusively and tailored to the requirements of the individual companies.

We understand the importance of a corporate event in terms of cost and reward, target and achievement and the benefit that a well organised and dynamic event can bring to your firm and your employees. We aim to help you provide an event which will leave delegates feeling refreshed and inspired, with a sense of accomplishment. We also understand the importance of relaxing and having fun, to acknowledge the contribution made by your hardworking team.

Every client is different and has its own specific agenda, so it is important that we listen to your needs and design a truly bespoke event; however Birdsgrove House provides as standard :-

Accommodation for up to 25 delegates in Birdsgrove House
Meeting and break out spaces
Team building opportunities
2m projector screens and projector
Cottage within the grounds, sleeping a further 7 guests
