Exeter Chiefs train at Holne Park House
Holne Park House Corporate and CRS Adventures ran a two-day training programme for the Exeter Chiefs, in preparation for the squad’s pre-season campaign.
The secrets to a successful away day
River Dart Country Park is a unique location for team building exercises and corporate away days. Set in 90 acres of picturesque parkland, the park has everything close to hand; from high ropes and zip wires, to the River Dart and local caves. Stately home, Holne Park House, stands proud at the heart of the park, offering an impressive indoor setting for group work, refreshments and accommodation, as well as somewhere to debrief after the rigors of the great outdoors!
Working together to achieve more, with help from the great outdoors!
Regularly hosting corporate away-days coordinated by General Manager, Roger Sell, Holne Park House offers an exciting range of bespoke team building packages, with each one tailored to the individual client to ensure that it meets a specific set of objectives for the day. So when family-run line marking and specialist surfacing company QMS needed to try a different approach to their tri-annual business review meetings, they knew just where to turn.
"It's the perfect venue for our off-site pre-season activities. When planning the training schedule we knew that River Dart would be able to accommodate our large party. Roger Sell and the team at River Dart Country Park have been first class in creating an environment away from Sandy Park to put the players out of their comfort zones, giving us a great chance to see how they react under real pressure in a different environment.
"Thank you for a wonderful 2 days at Holne House for our senior managers’ leadership development programme. We were so well looked after; food was fantastic; the setting beautiful and the facilities are truly wonderful in the most picturesque part of the country."
Avon & Somerset Search & Rescue
"Can I say how impressed we all were with the facilities at River Dart Country Park. All the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and why we never thought of using RDCP before now is beyond me."
Prison Choir Project
"We staged the musical West Side Story in Dartmoor Prison. Holne Park House is a short distance from the Prison and a lovely drive across the moor to Princetown. The Coach House is very comfortable and the Country Park provided a perfect base for our travels to and from the prison each day."
Cornwall Fire & Rescue Service
“Everyone said it’s the best course they have done in the fire service.”
Rich Helleur, Cornwall Fire & Rescue Service
“I would like to thank you and your colleagues for looking after us whilst on a physically demanding Water Rescue Course."
Rescue 3 (UK)
“A real pleasure to deal with. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. The House is ideally placed within the Park with great access to the training venue."
Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service
“We first approached RDCP in March 2008 in an attempt to secure a suitable venue for water rescue training, a core requirement of DSFRS, the challenge was to locate a venue that offered access to fast flowing clean water but must also have lecture room facilities, drying rooms, changing rooms, shower and catering facilities."
“The venue and food was perfect for our needs, and the staff made the whole process of organising the event so much easier.”
Karen Gough Dartington Hall
All the staff involved with our event went out of their way to assist us.”
