Team Building Activities

Team Building Activities

We offer indoor and outdoor team building programmes in association with local, experienced team building companies. Away from the everyday workplace and in an area of outstanding natural beauty, The Kingscote Barn will help to focus and inspire your team.

Inspire and motivate your team and enjoy yourselves with some of our productive corporate team building activities. We offer programs that can last from one hour to half day or even full day. We have both indoor options as well as outdoor challenges suitable for virtually any size of group. However we recommend a minimum of 20 delegates for a good selection of activities.

Our teambuilding activities have been designed to bring out the best in team work, leadership, negotiation, planning and time management to name but a few.
We have listed below just some of the activities that we can offer here, if you are looking for something a bit different please feel free to call our team to discuss your requirements.
