Summer Events

With spring finally here and summer just around the corner, now is the perfect time to make the most of the (hopefully!) good weather ahead and take your corporate event into the great outdoors. Whether you’re looking to hold a summer bbq, drinks reception or teambuilding event, there’s a whole host of hotels and venues across the UK that have some amazing outdoor event space available to hire – and you’ll find that most of them will offer a wet-weather indoor option for those days when our weather really can’t be trusted.

For a little bit of luxury, why not check out Hand Picked Hotels, a privately-owned collection of 21 country houses and coastal retreats all over the UK that offer outside space in beautiful locations, ideal for corporate retreats, away days and outdoor events. From Rhinefield House in the beautiful New Forest to Norton House in Edinburgh, they’re sure to have a property in their portfolio that will suit your summer event needs. Also offering spacious grounds and great locations are the properties within The Venues Collection – their 5 venues are all tucked away in the countryside despite being situated close to motorway links and as they say themselves, they ‘offer space to work, space to celebrate and space to relax’. As most of their venues have flat, landscaped gardens, they also offer the option to put a marquee in their grounds to create an ‘indoor space outside’ as well as having free on-site car parking, accommodation and a range of seasonal menus to choose from. 

From country house hotels in picturesque locations to sports stadiums and historic properties, we work with a variety of venues here at tobook recommends that are sure to suit every taste and budget – and as all of them are cherry picked for their amazing customer experience, you can be rest assured that your event will be in good hands! Perhaps you’d like to escape the constraints of the office and the isolation of home working by bringing your team together at Billesley Manor near Stratford-upon-Avon? This stunning 16th century manor house complete with topiary garden is set amongst 11 acres of Warwickshire parkland and offers the perfect backdrop for summer events. Alternatively, De Vere Cotswold Water Park might just tick your boxes; set among the honey-coloured villages and gently rolling hills of the Cotswolds, this unique property boasts 15 event spaces and apartments set amongst 152 beautiful lakes. Their newly refurbished Kingfisher Suite and adjoining Whimbrel Marquee have their own private outside area which is perfect for summer celebrations with friends, family or colleagues. Or perhaps you’re looking for team-building with a difference – why not check out the fabulous options at Coombe Abbey in Warwickshire. Set amongst 500 acres, their team partners with Off Limits and Eventurous to offer a whole host of exciting experiences such as Crystal Maze or Totally Wiped out, or you could opt for Go Ape High Ropes for a bit of adventure!
