Large farmhouse sleeping 24 with excellent leisure faciltiies for corporate events and business meetings near Dorking

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Ridge Farm, Capel, Dorking, Surrey, sleeps 8 - 24 in 12 bedrooms.

Ridge Farm is a 12-acre complex in beautiful rural surroundings – an ideal place for workshops & retreats, and somewhere a bit different for business teams to study, relax and get to know each other.
The Farmhouse is a stunning Mediaeval building that accommodates up to 24 people in 12 bedrooms, either self-catering or with cook-housekeeper. The large reception rooms are perfect for meetings or, if you need a bigger area, the pool-house is a light, airy space with room for 120 seated.
We don’t offer entertainments like clay shoots or quad biking on site (although these and many others are available nearby) but it’s a great place to chill out, and there’s plenty of space for groups to organise their own low-key activities. The sauna & Jacuzzi are available all year round, and if you’re not using the Pool-house for your meetings you can, of course, enjoy a swim.
We’re in an easily accessible position on the Surrey-Sussex border, mid-way between Dorking & Horsham, a mile and a half from the A24. Gatwick airport and the M23 are 15 minutes drive, and the M25 is about the same distance. There’s plenty of parking here, but we’re particularly well-placed for arriving by train too, as Dorking is on two lines (N-S serving London and the South Coast, and and E-W between Reading and Ashford) and the stations are well-served by taxis.
We know our guests need to be in touch with the outside world, so we’re a Wi-Fi hot-spot, and although it feels like we’re miles from anywhere there’s good reception on all the mobile phone networks.
Ridge Farm has a long and fascinating history but is probably best known for being a world-class residential recording studio in the last three decades of the 20th century. Now it’s a favourite venue for weddings, holidays, workshops, retreats, product launches, location filming, corporate events & away-days, with the emphasis on getting away from it all.
