Book a 'work-cation' and super charge your team at our inspiring business venue 



Howgills House - an inspirational business retreat 


Our workplaces have seen a radical change over the last year; not only the way we work but where we work too... with many of us now working between home and the office.

What better way to re-unite the team, re-train/upskill or simply re-connect again than by getting away from it all and privately hiring Howgills House for your event. 12 en-suite rooms sleeping up to 20 guests as well as different 'break out' areas. 


Not forgetting the inspirational country location that is only a 10 minute drive off junction 37, M6. Free onsite parking and B4RN wifi; the world's fastest rural broadband. We offer a variety of delegate packages and prices to fit a whole host of training budgets.

You might be thinking why choose us? We offer beautiful, private accommodation which we believe is inspirational.  This combined by our dedicated Advisor, Dawn who will ensure that the help and support you receive is second to none.  Please don't just take our word for it though. In July 2021, Howgills House was voted as one of the top twenty celebration properties in the UK by 

We also own two other nearby properties; Howgills Barn and Howgills Apartments which can be used to accommodate additional team members if required. Just enquire for more information.

We own nearby private land and fields which 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 bushcraft, orienteering, clay pigeon shooting, archery, and water sport activities on the nearby Killington Lake.

If you would like to embrace the outside - we have two marquees which can be used for dining or for outside, shaded work areas.


Our mission 

Let us wow you with our enthusiasm and dedication.  We'll go that extra mile to take away the headache of organising any aspect of your event  and for you to achieve the desired results. We're a small family business that genuinely cares that your training event is a success.
