Businesses can get their teams’ creative juices flowing amid the iconic landscape of the Lake District, with new luxury conferencing facilities overlooking England’s largest lake.The finishing touches have just been completed to 5-star gold rated* Silverholme Manor on the private Graythwaite estate, providing the perfect balance of state-of-the-art facilities and creative inspiration for corporate retreats. Silverholme’s newly refurbished coach-house has been transformed with state-of-the-art audio and conferencing equipment, including a 50” flatscreen TV. It can seat up to 120 people theatre-style for presentations and business seminars, or it can be arranged more informally for smaller groups and executive brainstorming.
This tranquil lakeside location on the western shore of Windermere offers easy access to teambuilding activities on the 5,000 acre estate, ranging from bushcraft and clay pigeon shooting, to kayaking and Lakeland Segway tours – all designed to energise and inspire. Organisational development specialists can also be drafted in to help co-ordinate business development or change management events.
This main house itself has four impressive reception rooms, phonelines and wireless internet capability (2G/5G), which can be used as informal meeting space or breakout areas. Grade II listed Silverholme also has luxury en-suite bedrooms for up to 12 overnight guests.
Overnight delegates can enjoy a constant flow of teas, coffee and homemade cakes, with a catering team on hand to provide a fully served cooked breakfast, 2-course lunch and 3-course dinner with matching wines – all using the highest quality, locally-sourced produce.
To truly unwind after an intensive day of meetings and presentations, leisure activities such as cocktail-making masterclasses, wine tastings or murder mystery themed dinner parties can also be arranged to bring groups together socially. Guests can even benefit from massage therapies or have a hot tub delivered for the weekend.
You name it, Silverholme can provide everything forward-looking businesses need to energise their staff and strengthen team dynamics ready for the challenges of 2013 and beyond.
