Our woodland/orchard venue offers a fantastic location for smaller more intimate corporate events.
We have a spacious 60ft x 30ft marquee available for both dining and conference facilities.
We have a real variety of accommodation at Tey Brook Orchard including 4 yurts, 4 bell tents, 1 converted grain silo and 1 shepherds hut (can sleep 40), all with their own power supply. For additional onsite glamping requirements, we can supply additional 5m bell tents as we do at Chalkney Water Meadows.
Chalkney Water Meadows
Acres of space on the edge of a tree-lined lake provides endless possibilities for activities, sundowners or team building exercises!
This is our larger venue with three festival style giant tipis which seat up to 200 guests (at a squeeze).
Glamping can be provided for guests with furnished bell tents made up as single and twin occupancy with double bedsteads, or multiple occupancy (max 4 person) with single mattresses on the floor.
Our two luxury cabins, situated just a two min walk from this venue, offers all your creature comforts on the edge of a beautiful lake.
We have teamed up with a variety of fantastic companies offering a diverse range of outdoor and indoor activities whether it is just for a little entertainment or fun or whether you are looking for some serious team building exercises, these guys have a whole host of recommendations and can tailor the package specifically to your requirements. Some activities to give you a flavour include: kayaking / paddle boarding on the lake, bush craft & survival skills, wine tasting, cocktail making, cooking classes, nature walks, yoga and spa treatments (available on request!).
We work closely with a selection of local, professional and friendly caterers who offer a variety of delicious food options with a focus on locally sourced sustainable foods and seasonal ingredients freshly prepared. We will take care of all dietary requirements and can outsource any other catering companies for a tailor made experience from quirky food vendors offering the festival vibe to scrumptious BBQs, picnics by the lake, hog roasts and even yummy paella; the options are endless.
