Organising a corporate retreat with West Lexham
It begins with a site visit for the clients to view the beautiful grounds of West Lexham, the accommodation and the venue spaces, and gauge what activities want to be held. After this, we will find a date that works for you, and then you need to turn up! We make it our duty to have everything prepared in time for your retreat, ensuring everything is organised and made comfortable to take the stress away from the retreat leader so they can have the most relaxing wellness retreat without any worries.
Accommodation on a West Lexham Retreat
A huge part of making things comfortable for retreats is to ensure that the leader sends us a layout of how they want the bedrooms set up at least two weeks before the day of arrival. Most members of groups are happy to share bedrooms, although some prefer their own rooms for privacy. Communication is essential in this part of the booking process as all rooms must be set up correctly to meet the needs of all guests attending. This, in turn, makes it very easy for retreat leader to allocate their guests to their rooms.
Catering at West Lexham
Meals are an essential part of bringing groups of people together. And like every other aspect of your countryside retreat, we ensure that all needs are taken care of, from dietary requirements right up to the laying out of cutlery on tables. At West Lexham, you can indulge in the flavours of Norfolk at our very own West Lexham Garden Kitchen. Our talented chefs utilise the daily harvest of fresh, seasonal vegetables, fruits, flowers, and herbs from the garden steps away to create an organic and delectable menu. Complemented by locally-sourced artisanal produce, we bring out the true essence of Norfolk cuisine.
Configuring the Event Spaces at West Lexham
Our spaces offer the flexibility to be configured in a multitude of ways. Typically, corporate groups like a setup space mimicking a conference event with theatre-style or tables in the centre of the room for talks or workshops. Our spaces can also be left clear for your yoga, fitness & meditation groups or set up for your team-building, conference-style groups. In addition, we ask the leader well in advance to let us know if they need yoga equipment or if they have any other specific requests. Again, this takes the stress away from the retreat leader, making their journey more comfortable and reassuring.
