Howgills Barn Business Retreats

alone we can do so little


A business retreat with inspiration

For Business Retreats, Howgills Barn offers private meeting facilities for up to 40+ people and there are different options for the day including holding a day meeting, a party or a residential trip spending the night(s). We have two marquees which join on to the side of the Barn, providing lots of space for dining together, holding a training session or a de-brief.


Make the most of your training budget too by enjoying our half price mid week special prices.


There is a large comfortable lounge to socialise or conduct team activities and there is a rustic lecture theatre where you can hold your presentations.


Not forgetting, the miles of open space, breathtaking views and numerous walks and hikes from the doorstep. As the Barn is set up a winding lane you have the added benefit of lots of privacy. It’s a short walk in to the beautiful town of Sedbergh, which offers independent cafes, shops and pubs.

The grounds around the Barn lend themselves perfectly to country pursuits and team-building activities, and we work with partners to provide exciting events for your business, which we can tailor to your training/business requirements such as bush craft, orienteering, clay pigeon shooting, archery and water sport activities on the nearby Killington Lake.

The Barn has an ideal location with easy access to the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. as it's a ten minute drive off J37 of the M6.

Our accommodation offers 8 en-suite bedrooms (mixture of bunks, doubles and single beds sleeping up to 28 guests), parking for up to 20 cars and free wifi. We also have a group of Apartments which are a 5 minute walk away from the Barn, providing alternative accommodation of double and single beds.

We do our best to ensure that every business retreat is 'spot on'. Papakata (March 2019).

" Hi Nigel & team,


I just wanted to email and say a huge thank you for having us on Wednesday evening! The barn was perfect and everyone had a fantastic time.


I have just completed the feedback form but wanted to thank you very much for everything 


We will definitely be back!

I hope everything was okay after we left yesterday but of course let me know if not!


Thanks again, warmest wishes,
