I recently stayed at the Wyck Hill House Hotel & Spa; an 18th Century manor house hotel set in a 50-acre estate with spectacular views across Windrush Valley.
Wyck Hill House features 60 bedrooms, an award winning restaurant and four meeting rooms, the largest of which can accommodate up to 150 delegates in a theatre-style layout. Fifty minutes south of Birmingham and 1.5 hours from London, Wyck Hill is a stunning country retreat with breath-taking views, 50 acres of outdoor space and ample on-site parking.
Whilst in the area I also visited The Cherwell Boathouse in Oxford – about 40 minutes from Wyck Hill and an iconic Oxford punt station and restaurant on the banks of the River Cherwell. The Boathouse itself has a Restaurant and a marquee on the terrace overlooking the river – perfect for private functions.
I had a go at punting which although is very hard work is a lovely way to spend an hour or two sailing leisurely down the river and admiring the wildlife. The relaxing tour is perfect for a staff reward activity and a great client entertainment idea!
