Corporate Retreats

Helsbury Park in Cornwall is a stunning location for a corporate retreat, perfect for escaping the workplace to focus, talk, share and relax.

Why do we need to retreat?

In recent years the number of progressive organisations taking wellness and wellbeing seriously has increased exponentially.  Supporting employees and colleagues through the many associated elements, including menopause leads to improved morale, reduced absence and sickness and more importantly can significantly reduce the likelihood of being taken to an employment tribunal.

Building an open and supportive culture around wellness and wellbeing will benefit both current and future employees.  With menopausal women identified by the ONS as the fastest-growing workplace demographic, being a Menopause Friendly Employer is also likely to become an increasingly significant factor in recruitment and retention.

Our Retreats

Our Retreats provide a safe and supportive space for a select group of colleagues to share their stories, to breathe, to unwind and to explore. Being in our ancient woodland gives participants time to reconnect with nature, themselves and each other.  It is an opportunity to identify the small changes that can make a huge difference, the perfect environment to start the conversation and transform your workplace.

Our Accommodation

The accommodation is provided in six individual, en-suite rooms. Along with a well stocked kitchen for drinks and snacks, a cosy sitting room with a wood burner  is available for relaxing in the evenings. Superfast broadband can be accessed throughout the property.

Catering options

Healthy, hearty meals are provided using quality produce locally sourced where possible.  All special dietary requirements can be catered for with advance notice. Continental breakfast selection, buffet lunch and dinner included.  Evening meals may be prepared in the accommodation and served family style or taken at a renowned local restaurant.

Course Content

Courses will be tailored to your company’s requirements and are totally focused on the needs of the delegates. Our specialisms include women at work, menopause, mindfulness, leadership, recovery, work in the digital age, wellbeing and emotional support. Inspiring speakers from local business can also be included by arrangement.

Engaging with Nature

Connecting with nature is a large part of the Helsbury Park experience.  With 100 acres of private land managed to encourage wildlife, river-side walks and ancient woodland opportunities for mindful moments abound. There is so much evidence about the mental health benefits of forest bathing:

On-site Pool, Sauna and Gym

The pool, sauna and gym are available throughout the retreat to enable guests to exercise at their own pace. With stunning countryside views, it is also a wonderful place to relax and unwind.

Free(dom) Time

There can be space in the retreat programme to explore the local area with many dramatic coastal and moorland walks close by.  Or just curl up in front of the fire with a good book.
