This isn’t your typical corporate event. There’s no generic hotel, no team building exercises, no dodgy disco. Instead we let the power of nature inspire and excite your guests all in the frankly soul stirring setting of Elmley Nature Reserve where we work exclusively to offer our corporate retreats.

“Elmley Nature Reserve was a stunning venue for our leadership retreat: quiet, intimate and a location which allowed powerful conversations to occur. The fabulous team who looked after us made us feel truly spoilt - that rare mix of 5 star service and a very human connection. I couldn't recommend Elmley enough!” Paul Hawkins, Facilitator

We will work with you to put together a bespoke retreat programme that will give you and your team the space to slow down and reconnect, because we know this is when the magic happens and ideas come alive. 

Corporate retreats - The Nature Sessions

Corporate retreats - The Nature Sessions

Our corporate retreats take place at the stunning Elmley Nature Reserve, just over an hour from London. Elmley is a 3,200 acre nature reserve with luxury accomodation and incredible facilities. It’s the perfect place to disconnect.

During your retreat you can get your head down and focus on the business of the day. The barn at Elmley is possibly the most impressive boardroom we’ve come across; we know your time is precious.

Or if time is on your side, you can chose from a huge array of workshops to inspire your team, including:

  • Wild Swimming

  • Yoga and Meditation

  • Candle Making

  • Wood turning

  • Screen Painting and Weaving.

  • If you are feeling adventurous, why not take your team for a sail on the Edith May? A restored barge that will take you for a sail around the beautiful Swale Estuary.


Elmley has a range of accomodation options to suit your budget and needs. It’s safe to say your guests will fall asleep in luxury and wake up to wilderness. Have a look at the bottom of the page for our accomodation gallery.
