Building Activities in Wiltshire
Teampursuits is a family run outdoor activity company managing
corporate teambuilding and leisure events.
Our location in the beautiful countryside of Wiltshire is
perfect for people who spend most of their life behind a desk
and overnight accommodation can be arranged for parties that
wish to extend their stay or would like to camp out in the
fresh air as a pleasant way to end the day. We are also within
easy reach of Bath/Bristol/Swindon, main line Bristol/Paddington
is only 5 miles to Chippenham and only 20 minutes from junction
We are lucky to have a wide range of local hotels to match
all budgets from exclusive Lucknam Park, The Manor House Castle
Combe, Bowood House Hotel, Whatley Manor nr Malmesbury, Beechfiled
House Hotel, Stanton Manor Hotel, Best Western Hotels and
a local Travelodge.
From our venue in Lacock, Wiltshire we have, since 1997, operated
a fully mobile service working with venues and event organisers
up and down the country. Along with our dedicated team of
instructors, we aim to provide you with new skills, inspiration
and unforgettable experiences.
With an itching to expand our base, armed with success
and knowledge of our customer needs, we set out to find
a location of our own so that people could come to us.
We were fortunate to find 2 redundant farm buildings, remains
of Selves Farm and have over the past 3 yrs renovated and
brought them back to life. Our newly developed site in Wiltshire
offers an ideal setting for outdoor events with acres of
unspoilt countryside. 'Owl
Lodge' provides 2 meeting spaces 'The Orchard Room'
and ‘Cara’s Barn’ along with a fully fitted
kitchen and awe-inspiring views from the 2 verandas.
Teampursuits offer days (or half-days) of motorized, traditional
country sports or team building events. Having all 3 elements
available on one site along with the catering we have the
flexibility of being able to tailor packages to suit your
exact requirements and budget. We try to be as flexible
as possible, allowing for individual tastes, talents and
budgets. As each event depends so much upon personal requirements
we would urge you to give us a call and explore ideas to
suit you best.
Corporate team building activities
For any company to truly excel it is vital that their staff work as a cohesive unit. Over the years, commercial enterprises of all sizes have found that one of the best ways to achieve this goal is by taking employees out of their normal surroundings and presenting them with various challenges that require them to work together in order to overcome obstacles and complete the tasks they are set. Although there is a serious point to such activities, we believe that there should be an element of fun running though them for them to be truly effective. For over a decade, we have been organising tailored events and fun team building days for clients from all over the UK. Our instructors are all fully qualified and experienced in their field of expertise and we work in conjunction with top training consultants to provide courses that are designed to meet our clients’ specific needs. Because every organisation is different and is comprised of individuals with their own strengths and weaknesses, we encourage interested companies to contact us by telephone so that we can make a recommendation once we are aware of their particular circumstances and what they hope to achieve.
Variety is the spice of life
We have found that concentrating on one particular activity is not always the best choice and some of the most effective team building ideas for management teams involve a range of activities during the course of a day. Our purpose-built facility enables us to offer a variety of pursuits that test a number of different skills and are sure to be enjoyed by all participants. Our location in the beautiful countryside of Wiltshire is perfect for people who spend most of their life behind a desk and overnight accommodation can be arranged for parties that wish to extend their stay or would like to camp out in the fresh air as a pleasant way to end the day. Some people may be reticent to become fully involved at first in office team building games that include outdoor exercises, but our instructors are very good at getting the most out of every person to make sure the activities are a complete success. Some of the activities that we offer at our venue are country sports such as archery, clay pigeon shooting and falconry whereas others offer high-octane excitement with the chance to drive off-road buggies and quad bikes in demanding conditions.
We can come to you
When we initially started running corporate training events in the UK we did not have a home base and therefore ran a mobile service, visiting clients wherever they happened to be. Although we now utilise our extensive grounds for many of the team building corporate events that companies commission us to arrange, we are still able to come to you if you prefer. To give people a better idea of what may be possible we sometimes hold open days where you have the opportunity to try out some of our activities and see which ones may be suitable for the venue that you have in mind. These days also give people the chance to meet us and discuss their needs in person. The advantage of organising an event near to your company’s premises is that it is easier for staff to attend and as long as there is enough space, the team building training exercises and group activities that are available at Owl Lodge should be able to be replicated quite easily. If you are not sure whether it would be best to hold your event at a local venue or at our facility then please call us for advice.
