Away days at historic Ragley

With less time spent in person at the office, it’s never been more important to find ways to bond with your team.

Taking everyone out of the office for the day sometimes seems like an impossible task but it has been proven to boost productivity by increasing an employee’s sense of value, as well as improving creativity and face-to-face communication. It’s a fantastic opportunity to show your team that you appreciate their hard work, to build relationships between different departments and a great way to commemorate a company achievement or anniversary. So why not, bring your team to Ragley to experience a hidden gem in the heart of Warwickshire’s countryside?

Our exquisite Rose Gardens, designed by Robert Marnock, and the Ragley parkland are the perfect space for a wide range of activities from scavenger hunts and archery to clay pigeon shooting and off-roading.

Our lakeside setting is a versatile space, which over the years has hosted full sized inflatable ‘It’s a Knockout’ style obstacle courses, to Segway races and duck herding.

Our Lakeside Marquee offers a chance for guests to gather, dine and socialise in between activities.

In a time where mindfulness and mental health have become a huge focus for employers and employees alike, perhaps it’s time to escape to the countryside for a day of yoga, crafting and meditation. In unparalleled country settings, with no interruptions, Ragley is a peaceful setting for you to press the pause button for the day and give employees a chance to relax and refocus. Adapt our State Rooms, into a massage parlour, a yoga studio, crafting stations and meditation zones, or take an open-air tai chi lesson on Ragley’s West Terrace overlooking the Rose Gardens and surrounding woodland.

If a day of relaxation in alfresco settings is not your thing, and you’d prefer to throw a celebration of an epic scale, our parkland regularly plays hosts to concerts, festivals and large outdoor events, making it a perfect setting for a corporate festival. Having hosted similar events for the likes of Talk Talk and Jackpot Joy, if you’re planning a corporate retreat of a large scale, our event license can accommodate a capacity of 9,999 guests. The breath-taking lake, at the centre of the estate, makes the most incredible of backdrops for framing a concert stage. Adjoining parkland can be utilised for festival sites, event villages, and glamping sites with woodland scenery.

Since closing as a public attraction in 2017, Ragley can now offer an exclusive and private setting for your event with no interruptions. Thanks to the vast expanse of parkland available at Ragley arrivals by helicopter are also welcomed.
