Do something different than the usual hotel based corporate break; a stay at Withymans will make a refreshing change whether it’s for team building, rewards or hospitality. In this gorgeous setting things will happen – deals will be sealed, minds will be inspired, productive working relations will be formed. At the same time, your group will be relaxed and happy – who said business and pleasure don’t mix?
Your guests will love Withymans, they’ll adore the Georgian grace, the eclectic interiors, and the fact that there’s plenty to keep them entertained. The cinema room doubles up as a superb space for presentations, the drawing room sets the scene for relaxation, and the games room is great for break outs; gather together for feasts in the kitchen or for a top notch barbecue outside on the patio. If you have able and willing cooks let them get on with it, but there’s always the option to hire private caterers from our tried and tested suppliers list (see Extras). You’ll find several ideas for activities there too, and for more inspiration and places to visit or eat, take a look at our Things To Do page.
Take your troops out in the fresh air, walk along the River Tone to Burrow Mump; climb to the top and then you can all go back down for lunch at the King Alfred Inn at the bottom of the hill. Test your target skills at Rifleman Ranges, have a cider tasting session and orchard tour at Burrow Hill Cider, hire self drive boats or canoes, or charter a narrow boat on the Bridgwater to Taunton Canal, go alpaca walking, or head over to the Jurassic Coast for a mackerel fishing trip at Lyme Regis. If cricket is your thing catch a match at Somerset County Ground, if you fancy a flutter go and cheer on the nags at Taunton Racecourse, and if you’re a golfy group, book a round at Enmore Park Golf Club or Long Sutton Golf Club.
For eating out, there’s such a choice! There are some excellent restaurants in Taunton and just a few miles away from Withymans are The Bird In Hand at North Curry, The Firehouse at Curry Rivel, and for a wonderful rustic experience, The Halfway House at Pitney. Whatever you choose to do, you’ll have a remarkable corporate break that’s enjoyed by all. Book now!
