Corporate Away Days

We have a range of facilities to meet your company needs. Our 19th century Fison Barn is a great location which can accommodate up to 100 seated guests and is fully equipped with IT/AV facilities. Alternatively, for smaller meetings, we have our office meeting room accommodating 25 people.

As well as hiring our facilities, we have a range of enjoyable activities your team can take part in as part of a company away day. Using our extensive nature reserve, including the Wittenham Clumps and Little Wittenham Wood, your team can enjoy being outdoors together shelter building, orienteering, bow and arrow making, cooking over open fires and much more. An unforgettable team building day!

“Our team had a great day together in this unique and beautiful venue. I would highly recommend companies choose the Earth Trust for their conference or team building day.”
