Wilderness Reserve: Saxmundham, Suffolk/

We simply love the unique Wilderness Reserve and with its expansion, including the newly renovated Chapel Barn Estate, it will bring the total number of bedrooms to 77 making this the ideal luxury retreat for businesses who love to be surrounded by beautiful countryside. With an abundance of activities all within the estate grounds you can learn a new skill (or perfect one of your own) with clay-pigeon shooting, archery, cooking, fishing, paddle boarding and more. You will not be disappointed with this luxury ‘staycation’ venue. Find out more >

Farleigh Wallop: Basingstoke, Hampshire/

Only an hour from London, Farleigh House and its grounds have been owned and tended by the same family since the 15th Century. With a garden that can accommodate up to 250 guests in a marquee or an opulent reception in the house for up to 40 guests, this gorgeous home lends itself to entertainment. Alternatively, if you need somewhere exclusive to discuss sensitive business plans, what better place than this exclusive venue. Find out more >

Thyme: Lechlade, Gloucestershire/

The opening of their new restaurant, Ox Barn, is one of many reasons to visit or revisit Thyme. This English country house hotel has been renovated with character and sumptuousness to ensure total comfort for every guest. With various event spaces to suit groups of 12 – 60 this is perfect for client entertainment, a company milestone or a board meeting; the facilities here are the perfect environment for an impressive corporate event.

Beaverbrook: Leatherhead, Surrey/

Having recently opened the hotly anticipated ‘Coach House Spa’, we could not think of a nicer way to treat employees than with a trip to Beaverbrook. With health and wellness being one of the most talked about subjects, this could be a really great way of ensuring colleagues take some much need time out to de-stress and recharge. Once you have relaxed, host an exceptional dinner or perfect meeting all within the elegant spaces this beautiful hotel has to offer. Find out more >

The Gallivant: Rye, East Sussex/

Fancy taking your break out session to the seaside? At The Gallivant this is exactly what you can do, with the hotel a stones’ throw away from the sand dunes of Camber Sands. If the fresh sea air leaves you feeling peckish try some locally sourced fish, from the fishermen who are known by name to the chef. The lamb is from the salt marshes that surround the hotel with other accompaniments often foraged from the local hedgerow, foreshore or wood. A stunning boutique hotel with 20 bedrooms.

Fairmont Windsor Park: Windsor, Berkshire/

Bookings being taken for 2021

We are super excited about this soon-to-be-opened reincarnation of Savill Court; a brand new luxury 200+ bedroomed hotel with 15 different event spaces for up to 700 delegates. With its indulgent super spa, this new luxury hotel is going to compete to be one of the best in the UK; and all this only 15 minutes’ drive from Heathrow! Powwow has been lucky enough to have had a sneak peek at what is going to be one of the most greatly anticipated hotel openings of 2021 and it does not disappoint. It even has escalators!
