Brenscombe Outdoor Centre are specialists in outdoor team and leadership development programmes as well as fun corporate activity days. We design and tailor each programme to meet the needs of each organisation and work in partnership with you to achieve the event you want.

Events can be activity focused or be facilitated and have a more developmental approach with the use of our experienced facilitators. We regularly combine management, personal development and leadership theories with discussions. These provide frameworks for learning and when combined with activities bring the learning to life.

Team development days are designed with an emphasis on improving how the team works together in the work place.

Often practical and experiential in their nature, these days can blend theory, activity, group reflections and discussions. The theory and discussions enable the experiences from the activities to be used as insights into the way the team works together inorder to find ways of doing things differently to improve performance. Development days can:

  • Improve general team working
  • Focus on team behaviours and culture, communication, problem solving and creativity
  • Examine personality variations within the team
  • Enable strategic planning
  • Provide positive shared experiences

Our fun days out are light-hearted events designed for team members to enjoy various activities.

The team benefits from spending time away from their working environment to enjoy themselves whilst developing closer working relationships with their colleagues. Days can be gentle and relaxed or competitive and hectic. All our days include good food with the option of a BBQ and licensed bar to finish.

Leadership training


Leadership training places more emphasis on developing the individuals within a group. This improves:

  • Critical thinking and decision making
  • Leadership style and approach
  • Personal emotional intelligence
  • Organisational development

Facilitated outdoor activities provide a powerful addition to apprenticeship and graduate training programmes.

From forming groups to learning about team work and leadership, outdoor activities can aid the transition to the work place with memorable experiences and accelerated learning. Programmes can be designed to:

  • Target specific workplace requirements in new recruits
  • Boost confidence and raise self esteem
  • Improve the understanding of effective team working
  • Introduce leadership skills
  • Provide a window for other people from the organisation to view and evaluate how the participants are performing

Residential or non-residential visits

We welcome corporate groups however long they want to spend at Brenscombe. We can design anything from a half-day programme to a whole week. Our accommodation is either in the farmhouse together with other converted farm buildings or under canvas. We can offer camping on site or for teams looking for more of a challenge we have our own private remote camping area.

Whether you are looking for a fun day out or a more focused programme we are happy to explore how a Brenscombe Outdoor programme could benefit your organisation.

We had a fabulous day at Brenscombe. Everyone was very excited to join us on the day and they certainly weren’t disappointed. The team put everyone at ease and ensured they enjoyed the activities. It was a great event for a mixed group and everyone interacted really well. We have received excellent feedback and will certainly look to bring another group.


Thank you for a fantastic weekend. And please re-iterate to the staff we are extremely grateful for everything that was done for us. I hope that we can now move on and become a much stronger team as a result of the weekend and the objectives we have set ourselves to achieve.


My team had an amazing time. The element of surprise and challenge was great - keeping everyone guessing throughout what would happen next. Over dinner many called out that this was the best offsite they had ever attended; aching muscles serving as a reminder of everything they did. Your team was excellent. Thank you again for your support. I hope to work together again in the future.
