Not only did we organise the 4 Day / 3 Night residential conference at Wotton House for one of our satellite communications clients, but Jackie our company director was on site managing the whole event!
De Vere Wotton House near Dorking in Surrey is an estate like no other. The 17th-century house was once the former seat of the Evelyn family and has a long tradition of entertaining guests. There is a delightfully eclectic mix of original features and 21st-century style, that set the tone and make this the perfect setting for enjoyable and memorable events. All found just 10-minutes from J9 of the M25, with Gatwick Airport only 40 minutes away and fast connections direct into London Waterloo Station.
There are a variety of meetings spaces available, the two largest are the Wotton Suite which can hold up to 140 delegates cabaret style and the Evelyn Suite which can hold up to 100 delegates cabaret style. There are then 19 smaller meeting rooms with maximum capacities ranging from 8 to 40 delegates Boardrooms Style, which are ideal for using as breakout/syndicate rooms for large events.
The venue has a variety of areas where you can hold dinners, which is ideal for events over several nights. From casual a buffet dinner in the Italian Gardens, to a formal dinner in The Old Library or a BBQ in the Walled Gardens. Obviously you will always need a wet weather contingency plan – as we mustn’t forget this is the UK after all!
The 13 acres of grounds make for excellent team building actives. This event in particular had a Medieval Theme, so on day 3 everyone was put into teams and each had a go at Archery, Trebuchets, heraldry, Cannons, Falconry and my personal favourite…. Segway Jousting!
