Corporate Days at Vale House Kitchen

Planning a corporate event with a bit of a difference? Want to avoid the same stuffy clichés everyone else goes for and book something your attendees will genuinely enjoy? Whether it’s a team-building day, you’re entertaining clients and partners, or you just want to treat hard-working employees after a brilliant year, Vale House offers a whole range of fantastic courses to suit all interests.
We’d be delighted to chat about creating a bespoke day or weekend experience just for you – get in touch at to find out more. In the meantime, you can browse all of our courses for inspiration here, and check out our top five reasons to book Vale House for your next corporate event…
1. It’s something totally different
Whether you choose a shooting weekend, a bread-making masterclass, a butchery day or one of our seasonal classes (foraging in the summer, preserving in Autumn, festive edible gifts at Christmas), it’s guaranteed to be a breath of fresh air and make a lasting impression on your guests – particularly important if you’re entertaining clients or partners. After all, who doesn’t love a fantastic day focused on food?
2. It’s great for team-building
Learning a new skill is a brilliant way to bring any group of people together – trying something new breaks down the barriers as everyone’s starting from the same place. No matter which course you choose, by the end of the day everyone will have achieved something to be proud of and have plenty of treats to take home. If you’re with us for a day or a weekend, you’ll also have the opportunity to share some wonderful meals, a great opportunity for people to chat and connect in a relaxed environment.
3. It’s the perfect location
Vale House is a beautiful old manor house in the village of Timsbury, just outside Bath. Tucked into the side of a hill and surrounded by unspoiled English countryside, it feels like a glorious escape from the bustle of the city – but, of course, it’s just a short 8 mile drive to Bath, with major rail links including express train services to London in just 90 minutes.
4. It’s tailored to you
While we’re very happy for you to pick one of our existing courses for your group, we’d also love to come up with the perfect programme just for you. We can get out in the fresh air for game shooting, clay pigeon shooting, fly fishing or foraging, or we can stay in our cosy classroom for baking, preserving, butchery or cooking. We can also offer several different activities, splitting guests into smaller groups and rotating through so that everyone gets to try them all. Whatever you choose, our expert team of tutors will make sure you have the perfect day.
5. It’s a complete package
Not only can we offer brilliant, unforgettable experiences for your and your guests, but we can help you with the whole package to make things as stress-free as possible. We’re happy to recommend local accommodation, provide a shuttle service (or help you arrange one, for larger groups of people), suggest other brilliant services and activities in the local area, and much more. Just drop us a line and we’ll be delighted to help.
