Corporate Activities

Kentwell is an ideal place for Corporate Activities of any kind. Not only does its peaceful and tranquil atmosphere make a welcome change from any business environment but we can devise a variety of activities for the day to achieve the organizer's specific aims.

Kentwell's Special Skills & Facilities

First, the rare organizing ability of Patrick & Judith Phillips. They have 30 years experience in creating unique events at Kentwell.

Secondly, a range of entertaining and stimulating Tudor style activities from the martial (Swordplay, Longbow Shooting or Pike Drill) to the less physical (Baking in a faggot oven, Subtletie making, Quill writing, Spinning etc.). We can select from a wide range of such activities to match the needs and abilities of the persons to be practising them.

Thirdly, Patrick Phillips's unique teasing and testing (if not devilish) Quizzes. Most companies have several who relish a battle of wits and there is no mind more devious than his. In these days of Sudoku and Crosswords it is not surprising how popular his Quizzes have proved.

Fourthly, there is a range of games & similar activities including the unusual Three Men in a Boat challenge round Kentwell's Main Moat.

Fifthly, there are the Tours of Kentwell which all who visit find adds greatly to their enjoyment.
