Wow your corporate guests with an away break at The Benches, on the banks of the River Wye; whether it's corporate hospitality or rewards, or gathering together a group of executives for an important meeting or think tank session, the spacious surroundings and beautiful views will inspire creative thinking and productivity.
The dining room has a huge table where you can all work together, whilst the lounge and the summer house provide the perfect space for breakouts and separate group meetings; some of the beds can be configured as either doubles or twins; just let us know and they'll be arranged as you wish. The kitchen is commodious and well equipped, perfect for people who like to unwind by showing off their culinary expertise. At the end of a focused working day, your guests can relax with a drink or a barbecue on the veranda and admire the gorgeous views stretching across the river and the countryside beyond; they might like to take a dip in the heated pool (Apr-Oct), to have a soak in the hot tub, or an invigorating session in the sauna. There's an acre of beautifully kept grounds to wander in and at the bottom of the garden is a gate that takes you onto the footpath along the riverbank; it's a short walk into town one way, and in the other direction a two mile level stroll will take you to The Boat Inn at Penallt where you can sit at the front and have a drink.
Why not book up for some exciting team building activities whilst you're in this neck of the woods? With the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean close by there are heaps of possibilities; kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding, high ropes, adventure courses, caving. On our Things To Do page you'll find several suggestions; Canoe the Wye at Symonds Yat, quad biking at Chepstow Outdoor Activity Centre, high ropes at Go Ape Forest of Dean, Pedalabikeaway near Coleford, and Severnvale Equestrian Centre near Chepstow. You'll also find ideas for days out if you want to show your guests the local area; take them to Raglan Castle, Dewstow Gardens and Grottoes, Wye Valley Sculpture Garden, or for something different, to Clearwell Caves, or a ride on the Dean Forest Railway. If the timing is right take them for a flutter at Chepstow Racecourse.
When it comes to dining you'll find quite a variety of places to eat on our Things To Do pages; country pubs like Miners at Sling near Coleford, and The Inn at Penalt just a couple of miles away, and in town there's a good Italian restaurant, La Piccola Italia and #7 Church Street which has 2 AA rosettes. Don't forget, there's always the option of booking up one of our well reputed caterers to come in and cook for you; they really know what they're doing and they make it seem so effortless; it's incredible!
