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... Many of us now work between home and the office.

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


Our inspirational country location is only a 10 minute drive off junction 37, M6. Free onsite parking and B4RN wifi (the world's fastest rural broadband) add to our appeal and we offer a variety of delegate packages and prices to fit a whole host of development budgets.

Why choose us?


We offer beautiful, inspirational private accommodation, combined by our dedicated Advisor, Dawn, to ensure that the help and support you receive is second to none.  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 own two other properties nearby; Howgills Barn and Howgills Apartments which can be used to accommodate additional team members if required.  Please enquire for more information.

Our private land and fields lend themselves perfectly to country pursuits and team-building activities.  We work with trusted partners to provide exciting, experiential, engaging events for your orgnanistion, tailored to your requirements such as bushcraft, orienteering, clay pigeon shooting, archery, and water sport activities on the nearby Killington Lake.

Why not embrace the outside, inside?  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, organising all aspects of your event so that you achieve the desired results. We're a small family business that genuinely cares about your development event success.
