Newsletter Autumn 2019
Don’t miss our autumn open day and workshop
Our next open event will be on 8 October, 10.00 – 3.00. Put it in your diary. No matter if you have been before – join us or send your colleagues!
A select group really enjoyed the workshop on Deeper Learning at our open day in July. We discovered that deeper learning is not unfamiliar to any of us – just hard to find if you are not prepared!
“The High Trenhouse open day was different. Networking with interesting people, a deep learning workshop and sharing experiences over a delicious lunch. What a treat. I would highly recommend you check out this unique venue for yourself.”
Gary Sheader, Founder – Manufacturers Alliance
Rob Wilyman and Mark Shepherd of Apollo3D, based in Otley, have made a virtual High Trenhouse that enables you to take a guided tour or explore at will.

A measure of success
It was great to get this message from Jon Stockton, VP – FedEx.
“We came to High Trenhouse in 2006 with our key customer, RBS. We were challenged to develop a strategy for the future of the partnership. Now in 2019 we have delivered on that strategy and RBS is still a key customer. The success of the business and my own personal development and progression owe a lot to those few days at High Trenhouse.”
What worked for Jon can work for you too. Get in touch if you need help to enhance your performance or your wellbeing.
State of the art technology
N Brown Group plc and other organisations have enjoyed our new interactive whiteboard and short-throw laser projector with video conferencing capability. Of course, some groups have no need for this technology, because they are doing other things. Still, it’s good to know it’s there if you need it. Come and make use of it yourself.
The magic of High Trenhouse
Robyn is getting behind the camera to capture something of the euphoria people experience when they stay at High Trenhouse. Here is a short clip of one of her early interviews. Do please grant us an interview when you bring a group – just a few minutes of your time will help others find the place they need to change their lives and work.
Make hay while the sun shines!
This year, because our ride-on mower was out of action, the grass grew long enough for us to make hay by hand at High Trenhouse for the first time in 40 years!
The garden and grounds continue to delight. They have been particularly wonderful this year (even more so) helped by the early spring and warm summer.
Align your strategy, vision and purpose
We readily talk about what, how and why we do something, usually without realising that we have in our hands and minds the key to success and satisfaction. At the organisational level, What, How and Why show up, perhaps surprisingly, as Strategy, Vision and Purpose. In this short article we look more carefully at these outer manifestations, as well as uncovering the inner human attributes that produce them. In doing so we discover how everyone of us can sharpen our focus, live and work more effectively, and become more successful and fulfilled.
We recently welcomed a sewing group to High Trenhouse. All the meeting rooms were transformed into sewing rooms for the occasion. It was a lovely group, a great weekend and everyone had a good time.
“A perfect place to craft and relax – delicious food, wonderful staff and stunning scenery”. Nicky Bates – The Thread House Retreat
We encourage you to bring your own special interest group for business or leisure – we can adapt! Call us on 01729 830322 to discuss possibilities
People love the food at High Trenhouse. It is always fresh home-cooking. Gone are the days when the milk came from our own cows but we still produce some fruit and herbs.
We picked enough gooseberries for some tasty pies. Be quick, they are going fast!
