On behalf of myself and my team I would like to thank you and the staff at Escot for your hospitality. We all thoroughly enjoyed the events and thought not only was the food delicious but the staff were extremely helpful too.


Made to feel very welcome, thank you for a great day.

We recently held our firm's Summer BBQ with you - it was a fabulous day so thank you for helping make it so.


It was a wonderful day and we were so lucky with the weather. It was fantastic and the whole team had a great time.


Following our very successful day at Escot last July we are hoping to organise another visit. Many thanks

The venue, the food, the service and the activities planned were the perfect combination for a successful day out with the team. Please extend my gratitude to the staff, whose service was impeccable.

I enjoyed a full tour and homemade biscuits! Thank you so much for having us - we are keen to come back. Escot is a cracking place for the sort of events that I like to run.

Thank you so much for your hospitality last week, the food was extremely well received and the venue was perfect! Our next group coming are very much looking forward to it.

Thanks for the help the Escot House staff gave us on Thursday last week. These meetings have happened once a quarter this year and Escot got voted the nicest meeting place so far. The other two meeting locations are new, comfortable but soulless offices. With the age, high ceilings and greenery all around there was no competition really!


I would just like to say a big thank you to all your staff for being so helpful during our Team Day Event. We all had a great day, the food was excellent and the timings of drinks and snacks was spot on.

Steve (Community Manager)

A massive thank you for a very successful event yesterday; we all loved the venue, the food was awesome (best Away Day food ever apparently) and everyone enjoyed the afternoon archery and Segway activities.

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 for team-building and away days in Devon, with a multitude of fun and challenging 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
  • Inflated obstacle course
  • Gladiator duel
  • Land raft
  • Minefield
  • Cannon run

Less adrenaline-based options include:

  • Forest school
  • Bushcraft skills
  • Interactive treasure hunt

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.
