Company Team Building and Team Development

Boost performance and results

Our tailored company programmes are a great way of getting your team out of the office, building relationships and trust at a deeper level and boosting performance and motivation. 

We can work with groups of up to 12 and will design and facilitate activities that link with your team’s development needs as well as being fun and memorable.  So your ‘away event’ is more than just ‘raft building’ – although we can do that too! 

Dependent on your needs, one, two and three-day events include a mixture of indoor and outdoor activities*, problem solving and communication challenges  and deeper ‘classroom’ learning relating to personality type, motivators, team roles, team performance, beliefs and comfort zone, confidence, resilience, leadership, etc.  The programme may even include work with the team pre and post the activity centre event for maximum impact.

Planned properly a team development programme will deliver:

·         Increased productivity

·         Improved communication and working together

·         Greater self-awareness and understanding of others

·         A boost in motivation and morale

* We have an indoor climbing wall, high ropes and a lake giving us a wide range of physical activities to offer – however, participation is always on a choice basis and team members who have medical conditions or do not want to undertake physical work will still play a role in the activities

Accessibility for all

We are very aware that teams are made up of a huge diversity of individuals with individual needs. At Carlton Lodge we pride ourselves on making sure whatever the needs of the individual we can support it. Be that a specific diet or a physical need.

Our catering team can provide food for all requirements whatever the medical, religious or life choices made and all to the same high standard.

For those needing that bit of extra help Carlton Lodge also has specialised equipment to allow individuals with physical disabilities the opportunity to fully participate. Equipment includes off road wheelchairs, specialised climbing harnesses and canoes, which our instructing team is trained to use.

Our experience, knowledge and equipment mean that whoever is in your team we can support their needs.


For 2 and 3-day courses, our on-site accommodation is the most cost-effective choice.  We also have partner hotels locally.

FREE discovery session and tailored proposal

Come and visit us at Carlton Lodge to meet our team, tour facilities and discuss your aims:

Feedback on Carlton Lodge Activity Centre

“The team at NYY will bring out the best in your group.  Every person will find an activity they will enjoy being part of - even that one team member who rarely gets involved will walk away smiling and full of confidence.  Our team at Element have taken 100s of people to Carlton Lodge and have always had excellent results.”

Feedback on our Team Development Facilitator*

“The day was created in a way to encourage team bonding in a fun and creative atmosphere. It allowed the team to formulate company ethics and a working environment we can build on.”

“Zoë is very good at understanding the underlying issues and respectfully listens whilst looks at solutions and makes you think about your own work ethic and style of management.”

“A really informative day. It helped me to understand both my colleagues and the company in a much better way. Zoë was excellent in her approach and delivery of what we were doing.”
