The Ideal Place for Staff Training
Let’s Get Cooking

“Let’s Get Cooking have been using Brogdale as a venue for our training and celebration events for a while now. We find the Brogdale farm a friendly, efficient and charming setting for our events. Facilities are good and the farm setting is a bit special and I know that our delegates always pop in the farm shop to buy treats after the training. We always look forward to returning to the Brogdale farm and would recommend the venue full heartedly”

Our customers say:

“I just wanted to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to you and your team for the brilliant event you have put together for us on Friday last week.

Although it’s now been a few days, people are still talking about the day spent in Brogdale and the feedback I have received has been overwhelmingly positive – words are now spreading fast on campus and some people are even talking about next year!…

Despite the hot weather conditions, people have really enjoyed all tasks;  especially the Scavenger Challenge which as an exercise, really brought the teams together. Our Department is made out of 70+ members of staff, spread over 3 different sites and although some people might talk to each other over the phone, with turn overs etc, people don’t necessarily get to meet or know each other and I have to say that since our away day,  I have seen people  interact much more and speak to each other. So just for that reason, I think this has been a very successful day!

Big thank you also to the actors and activity facilitators who were really fantastic and kept us entertained all day!”
