“The accommodation was to a very high standard and the meeting room facilities fitted our needs perfectly. Also a great location centrally placed in the country, easy to get to for a widely dispersed team. I would high recommend these cottages for a corporate team stay”

Corporate retreats, board meetings, management courses, team-building and more

Calling all HR managers and anyone involved in organising a corporate retreat, away day, team building event or simply gathering executives and colleagues from around the country or the world in one central location.

We’re really good at creating the ideal corporate retreat accommodation, catering and activities. You let us know who will be attending and whether you’d prefer to rent our individual one, two, three or four bedroomed cottages or get everyone together in our super spacious 11-bedroom cottage.

We provide all the equipment you need to create your own meals and many of our corporate retreat guests tell us that cooking together is great for team building. Alternatively, for larger groups, we can serve delicious formal meals in The Refectory or deliver mouth-watering meals ready to serve yourself.

Looking for accommodation near the NEC? We are within 30 minutes of the NEC and if you are exhibiting there what better way to relax after a long day at the NEC show than a warm and cosy cottage to recharge those batteries!

“We have used Upper Rectory Farm Cottages for our off site business meetings for some years now. Their flexible, well appointed accommodation makes for the perfect environment to get people out of the office - we’ve made many of our best decisions there. I’d recommend them to anyone, nothing is too much trouble for the hosts and it’s a great location for people travelling from all over the country.”
