Let’s build a more wholesome society!

Request for Feedback
Retreats, off-site team development and strategy innovation events can be extremely valuable.
We would really like to know how you view the Covid-19 situation with regard to taking groups away. When will you get off-site again? What will give you the confidence to do so? Please fill in our short survey.
The outcome of the survey will be available if you email us with your address.
High Trenhouse is secluded from general circulation, and is therefore, a relatively safe place to be with plenty of open space and fresh air. At least, you know who is around; just your own group and our hospitality team!
Nevertheless we take the risk of Covid-19 seriously and have in place protocols to protect both visitors and staff. We feel it is important that we not only feel safe but really are safe. We have one-way systems where possible and social distancing. We take care to clean and sterilise regularly. Our team wear masks and gloves when appropriate to protect you.
This means we are not back to the old normal. Dining, in particular, is a little different from how it used to be.
Groups of up to 14
It looks as though, for the time being, government guidelines mean the maximum group size at High Trenhouse will be 14 by using both buildings. Please check with us when you plan to bring a group.
High Trenhouse Woodland Walk
With no clients on site and our staff furloughed, the grounds at High Trenhouse have been in the care of John and Bernadette.
It is challenging but nature has done her fair share and everything looks good. The wildlife certainly seem to enjoy having the place to themselves. This video gives you a little insight into what it might be like to be here.
We look forward to welcoming you soon.
After the pandemic
The Covid-19 pandemic will be with us for some time. The pause challenges society to take an evolutionary step. It confronts us all with a discontinuity that may just be the saving of humanity, provided we grasp our opportunity to change direction. Without such change, global heating and further pandemics may kill us all! With it, we may enter a new golden age. We need to choose well!
