"helping teams see things differently"
Getting teams together in a hotel or conference facility is all very well, however to make great connections and gain a memorable experience, sometimes something different is required.
Bringing your team to our Woodland Retreat Venue, nestled beneath the South Downs in Hampshire, will do just that.
The location offers a unique and exclusive base to help you build connections within your team or and discuss/evaluate your business strategy or leadership.
A Woodland Retreat can be run in many forms, one of the most popular being a 24 or 48 hour gathering (itinerary below), where the team arrive around lunchtime on day 1 and hold a team meeting in one of our meeting rooms or round the campfire for the afternoon, followed by an evening meal then drinks and bed in comfortable Bell Tents. The following day begins with breakfast in the woods followed by bushcraft or other activities and team discussions over the day.
If you do stay over, you will be sleeping on very comfortable camp beds in roomy Bell Tents. You will have the site (1/2 a mile from civilisation) completely to yourself. And, if you can't manage an overnight experience, you can book the site for a day or evening of activity.
We will endeavour to respond with Event Options or an Event Design, within 24 hours.

building a team at meon springs, the wilderness way...
As you know, when your team is functioning well all sorts of magic can happen. And when it is not, business stops flowing, people leave and work becomes a drag.
Although there are many opportunities to build your team at work, there is nothing better than taking them out of their normal environment to work together on something different and unique.
A Woodland Retreat is a truly unique environment in which you are working with nature and learning new practical skills. But on another level, you're also developing leadership skills, building relationships, and nurturing a new level of understanding.
Designed as practical and interactive, this experience will introduce your team to key outdoor skills that will require you to listen, communicate, self-manage, delegate and negotiate.
All our experiences are fully catered and come complete with all cooking utensils, kettles, wood for the fire. There are natural ovens, tables stools and places to prepare food.
Also, you have compost loos, with the most amazing view and hot showers.
