Conference packages sharpen up the senses with corporate ‘duck herding’

delegates duck herding
Windermere is home to the Lake District’s largest population of ducks, geese and swans. But have you ever tried a spot of corporate ‘duck herding’? Lakeside Hotel & Spa has teamed up with Kendal-based See Events to launch a series of Lakeland Country Pursuits to sharpen up the senses in some of the country’s most spectacular scenery.

Corporate groups can now take on the challenge of duck herding at this tranquil retreat on the southern shore of Windermere.  Expert guides will be on hand for half or full day team-building events, using trained sheep dogs to herd feathered friends into a duck pen and a closing pen – all against the clock.  

Other Lakeland Country pursuits being offered to hotel delegates include traditional archery and laser clay pigeon shooting, as well as the chance to handle and fly magnificent birds of prey in the skies above the lake.  

With team dynamics sharpened and the creative juices flowing, delegates can get down to business. Companies can choose from 9 conference suites and a series of syndicate areas, all fully equipped with superfast fibre optic WiFi. The air-conditioned Lakeside suite accommodates anything between 60 and 100 delegates, with another 8 suites comfortable for up to 30 people.   

During the day, Lakeside’s landscaped gardens provide space for ‘walks and talks’ as well as moments of quiet reflection alongside the lake shore. Delegates will be refuelled throughout with plentiful supplies of tea and coffee, platefuls of scrumptious Danish pastries, along with homemade scones and local damson jam and clotted cream.  

Whether you prefer to wind down with the team or debate over dining, a choice of four private dining rooms are available for 24 hour delegates. Participants can unwind with imaginative dinner menus using the very best seasonal and locally sourced ingredients, such as Herdwick lamb from the hotel’s own personal herd.  

Although Lakeside is just 15 miles from the M6, you’ll feel a million miles from anywhere – making it the perfect executive retreat to escape the treadmill of traditional corporate training.

Corporate day packages with Lakeside Hotel & Spa start from £45+VAT per person, and include: meeting room hire and equipment, a hot buffet lunch, hot drinks and snacks.  24 hour delegates can also enjoy a four course dinner and overnight stay from £140+VAT.  

Duck herding costs an additional £695.00 + VAT based on a group of 10 participating.
