What a fantastic weekend fam trip we recently took part in with one of our partner venues, Wyboston Lakes in Bedfordshire!
Agents from all over the UK were able to see the latest developments at the venue which includes transforming the main meeting room, breakouts and catering outlet options – a project which is still ongoing but looking good.
Before a delicious buffet on the Friday evening, we had the tough job of choosing which gin to try from the various options on the ‘gin wagon’. This was followed by the younger guests in the group taking charge of the pumpkin carving which was good fun.
After a restful night’s sleep in the lovely bedrooms, we all woke up to a fine sunny day but a cold one! Who would have believed it for the last weekend in October? After a superb breakfast, guests then had to choose between various outdoor activities available on both the lakes and grounds – both are set up ready to to use for events.
Many chose to play the ‘on water’ playground with slides and various wet activities. The blast across the lake in a jet boat certainly blew away any cobwebs! Others chose to go 4×4 driving around the grounds and enjoying the views.
One of the highlights was the ‘Jet-lev’ which involved steering what looked like a jet pack from under the water up into the air and flying thanks to the jets of water whooshing beneath you. Strangely addictive but great fun.
The guests were then free to choose from a variety of culinary treats for lunch before winding their way home with happy memories of the weekend and ideas for how the venue could be used in the future by their clients..
