We had an excellent day at Escot yesterday, so many thanks to you and your staff for making all the arrangements.....

Team building time

Most businesses understand the need to get out of the office from time to time and do something a little different. Set in the heart of the East Devon countryside, Escot House and Estate is an ideal location, from the impressive Georgian house to the many activities available on site.

You may want to reward your team for their work on a particular project, energise and motivate them, or treat them to a day out because you’ve had a really good year. Whatever the reason, we will help make this special day away from the office a really successful event that will be talked about for many years to come. 

It’s helpful to know what type of activities your colleagues are up for so we can put the best combination of activities together. It’s worth finding out if they are up for getting rather muddy – or not! Are they likely to enjoy something to get the adrenaline pumping, or a pursuit that is more sedate?

Our activities include:

  • 4X4 driving on our own custom-built course
  • Segway experience
  • Laser-tag

Less adrenaline-based options include:

  • Forest school
  • Bushcraft skills
  • Letterboxing

In addition, working with local suppliers including Devon Country Pursuits and Wilderness Solutions, we are able to offer other alternatives to suit both your team and your budget. 

All this activity will work up an appetite, and our in-house catering will provide a scrumptious lunch buffet-style or seated, or perhaps a hog roast or barbeque. Food is prepared and cooked onsite, with fresh and locally sourced ingredients. We put taste and quality above everything. We also cater for dietary requirements and allergies, just give us plenty of notice of these so we can provide as wonderful a feast for everyone.  

Escot Estate is easily accessed from the A30 between Exeter and Honiton, with plentiful free parking. We can also arrange transport to and from Feniton and Honiton train stations.

Our experience and facilities mean that your corporate away day will be a positive opportunity for your team to bond, get to know each other better and have fun together. It’s also a chance for managers to show they’re only human too!

When everyone returns to the office, energised and with some great memories, their experience at Escot will help them towards an even better performance.
