I cannot speak highly enough of this extraordinary venue and the wonderful team who work there. For our annual corporate retreat we need somewhere that we can have exclusive hire of with plenty to do and a memorable experience for our team: boy does NCC deliver!
The facilities and rooms are plentiful and first class. The property and grounds are big enough for a large group to really spread out and yet somehow also intimate enough for everyone to feel together. The team could not have been more helpful in ensuring we had everything we needed but also left us alone so that it really felt like our very own place. We loved it so much that we immediately booked again for next year.
Thank you team NCC.

The team at North Cadbury Court are an absolute dream to work with! We have used the venue, with amazing facilities, bedrooms with a definite WOW factor, a house with great character and great wifi too multiple times and are always looking for a reason to come back! Every time we host an event at NCC our attendees always say they have never stayed anywhere like it, and it’s a trip to remember! NCC goes above and beyond to make sure our events run smoothly, the team are so lovely and welcoming – they always manage to make this grand venue feel like a home away from home!
It’s always a delight to go back – we cannot wait until next time!

I just wanted to say a massive thank you on behalf of all of us at Bonham & Brook, for all you did to make this weekend as memorable as it was. Everyone enjoyed themselves massively and we felt very lucky to spend a weekend in the most amazing property in such a lovely country setting. I must also say that Suzy, Guy from Pickers and those who helped with regards to the catering were fantastic. Not only was everything that they prepared for us delicious, but they were also incredible warming and accommodating all weekend; there was nothing we would ask that would be any trouble.

I know that some are looking for a shooting range in London because they enjoyed that afternoon with Birds Hill Days so much. We massively appreciated them allowing us to still do it despite coronavirus. They were very good and made it so fun for all of us and, of course, Covid safe. On the final day, I had the pleasure of meeting the owners. They were also very welcoming and pleasant, I was so pleased to hear that they were as happy as we were that we were there. Again, thank you very much and I wish you all the best. I hope I can return one day!

A quick note of thanks as we return back to London, renewed and refreshed after a fantastic team offsite. Thank you for your support, organisation and patience with us as we figured out the details. I am sure we will be back but in the meantime, thank you for everything! We are already spreading the word – and fingers crossed that results in that insane bottle of champagne coming our way 🙂

A very big thank you to you and everybody at North Cadbury Court for all their kindness, help and assistance with our visit last week. It was a pleasure to meet everyone and a very big thank you to Wendy who helped me with all the Sainsbury’s shopping and showing me all the kitchen facilities and giving us everything that we need. You have a fantastic location and facilities and I know the chefs felt honoured to be able to stay and have the venue for their practising for the final exams in August. Please pass on my sincere thanks to all at North Cadbury Court, and I hope we left everything in order to your satisfaction.

Every summer we like to take some time out by treating the office to a couple of days out of London. This year we decided to return to North Cadbury Court, after having an incredible time at the house two years ago. As expected it not disappoint, they had even more activities on offer than our last visit, so we didn’t even need to leave the house. We’re already a very close team, but our trip brought everyone that little bit closer and allowed us to welcome our two new starters – not bad for a first day at work!

What made you choose North Cadbury Court as the venue for your team gathering?
It’s a lovely place to get away from the hustle and bustle of London. We want to go somewhere to reward everyone’s hard work over the year, North Cadbury gives the team a sense of being somewhere grand and the feeling that we’re really splashing out on a unique experience for them. There’s tons of activities, enough to keep everyone happy. It’s big enough for everyone to have their own room. Also, we had such a great time two years ago, we had to come back!
What do you feel your team has gained from spending time there?
A well-deserved rest! Bringing everyone together in a non-work environment, and getting to know our new starters.
How does it compare to your day to day working life?
Very different! We have a great time at work, but it’s nice to go somewhere to relax and let off some steam.
How can being in a historic setting bring benefits to a company like yours?
It’s refreshing to mix it up and get a taste of a different environment. We’re all very competitive so it was fun to apply this to new experiences like the lawn games & other activities.
Would you come again?
Yes, definitely.

Thank you for all of your help and support with our executive retreat in November. It was a complete success and everybody has commented on how lovely the house was and how smoothly everything went. The house tour was also a great addition. The people who went on it loved the history and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had the best time – all 30 of us have loved spending time working (and playing) in this beautiful house, so much character. Thank you to all the staff for helping us create a fantastic event. I hope we will see you and get to stay at North Cadbury Court again.

I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for Wednesday. The judges had the most amazing stay at North Cadbury Court and just loved it! (As we knew they would!). The house is looking immaculate. Clearly you are doing wonders there and it has a fantastic vibe and charm about it. All in all you are running a wonderful venue there and we hope we can come back again in the near future!

All was well at North Cadbury Court and Georgia was there ready and waiting for me – so it was as smooth as silk. The bedrooms look wonderful, they are all so beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. I just wanted to point this out to you as I know the judges travel extensively and they will be used to quality rooms and bathrooms. They have certainly got this at North Cadbury. The whole place smelt fresh and clean – and this must be tricky for an historic building so I take my hat off to Georgia and her team.

Thank you for an absolutely spectacular stay! Our only complaint is that we weren’t here for longer – hope to come back soon!

Our 2017 company conference was held at North Cadbury Court and our whole team agreed it was a superb venue. The facilities made it the ideal location for both working breakout sessions and team bonding fun. We made full use of the outdoor bounce balls (highly recommend and make sure someone is filming!) the rooftop golf and the archery and wound down with a swim in the indoor pool and dip in the Jacuzzi. The house itself is beautiful with every one of the many rooms conveying a different character. Be sure to enjoy a sit down dinner in the North Hall (we used a local catering company “Pickers” – delicious food!) before exploring the underground club, casino and snooker room. The house management team were incredibly professional and thorough and more than happy to help us out with a variety of tasks. They made the stay hassle-free and enjoyable for all. We cannot recommend this venue enough for corporate stays (and private parties!) and we are all hoping for another visit soon!

We would just like to say a huge thank you for hosting us at North Cadbury Court last week. We all had an incredible time and managed to the run the full two days without any issues what so ever. My colleagues reaction to the themed ballroom was absolutely priceless, as were their faces when the bus first arrived.
We all felt at home during our entire stay, and probably had the best nights sleeps of our lives! Please pass on our thanks to Archie for being also a great host. All in all an incredible two days! We hope you see you again soon.

October, 2016

Thank you again for all your help with making arrangements for the conference — this edition was easily the best yet and the amazing infrastructure was one of the key things that made that success assured. The new flats and extra capacity made logistics with the caterers so much easier. Everyone had a wonderful time and the house was the star of the show!

All hail North Cadbury Court! We have had the most incredible getaway. After our stay here we are more family than colleagues. Truly unforgettable – thank you!

FANTASTIC! Our second year for our annual kick off, 40 of us in shared and single rooms. Outstanding setup for our use by the team here and a wonderful venue for relaxing, business presentations and prep for the year, plus all sorts of fun activities using the many facilities here. Strongly recommend this for a different, unique and enjoyable corporate event setting.

We have just returned from our second visit to NCC. It is a fabulous place to take a senior team where they can kick back and really get to know each other. The rooms are a great standard with some real character. There are great activities all included and the catering option worked well too. The casino and nightclub are a super addition and were fun. I can’t recommend it highly enough as a venue with that special feel and flexibility to do many team activities. We love the “hands off” approach.

Thank you for providing such a fantastic environment for us to bring 38 of our people together to celebrate the successes of 2015, set the strategy for 2016 and to network amongst and across our teams. We particularly enjoyed the range of activities and events available – from pool and sauna fun, snooker and darts, casino and disco, pedaloes on the lake, croquet, bubble football, tennis. We have had a fabulous time and would definitely recommend.
We also found all of our planning and communications with the North Cadbury Court team to be helpful, pro-active and excellent.
Amazing venue and we look forward to coming back again soon!

I have had some lovely feedback from my team about how much they enjoyed their stay at North Cadbury Court – I certainly did, even though it was sadly far too brief. A very special place indeed.
What a wonderful prize to offer for charity – please do pass on my thanks to the Montgomerys for their generosity and kindness.

 Just wanted to say the whole group was mightily impressed by your beautiful house and the surroundings, I think some were quite overwhelmed by the splendour of their bedrooms. Not sure anyone had played ping-pong in a ballroom before and it was certainly an experience for them. With the majority of the group coming from abroad it was a great advert for the English country house and countryside.

I truly believe this was a far better experience than a group of our size could have obtained in a hotel, and this added tremendously to the ‘team-building’ element. I certainly feel I got to know everyone very well after just a couple of days in an environment that was conducive to an informal atmosphere where everyone felt relaxed, at least once they got used to the grandeur of the surroundings! I have attended many team building and conference events in the past, all based in hotels, and I have never felt anything like the same level of togetherness that having an entire house at our disposal was able to generate, and without really trying too hard. Something about the relaxed atmosphere generated by being able to wander and knowing it was just us …………anyway, it worked! Thanks again for providing the basis of a truly memorable event.

When my wife heard where I had been yesterday she remarked on the professionalism of the way you and David dealt with the Jane Austen evening. Jane is not a person for excessive compliments, but thank you for the help you gave to her. The JA evening raised £3,500.

We had the most special time. Thank you.

On behalf of everyone with Cheese Journeys, a special thank you for a great week. The feedback has been excellent from our group who traveled with us and from those who read about our travels while back in the states. Having Jamie and Archie and his wife join us on Monday and Tuesday evening was a highlight.

We had an excellent day, the facilities were spot on, liaison with the house easy for organisation of the day. Archie was a great host and tour guide. The catering (canapés) were superb.

Sarah Fern, Events & Partnership Manager CLA

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at North Cadbury Court. The rooms were beautifully decorated and clean, the facilities were great and the grounds were kept lovely. Everybody loved the basement disco area. Had a sort of nightclub feel to it which was perfect for partying the night away. The event management was professional, efficient and very welcoming on arrival. I can’t really think of much to fault it.
