We have been lucky enough to host two groups at Pennyhill Park for FAM trips in the past 12 months and every single member, every trip has fallen in love with it just as we have.
Pennyhill Park is situated in Bagshot, just a short 35 minute train journey from London. Synonymous for its amazing Spa and the England Training group being on its doorstep we corporate events managers in the know, know just how amazing a venue it is for corporate events as well.
Our FAM trip started with a 3.00 pm check-in and a short walk over to the spa for our very own spa workshop with a senior beautician. Headbands on and makeup stripped bear, we learnt the correct way to cleanse, tone and moisturise and had a great laugh whilst we did it. Up next was what everyone had been waiting for, an afternoon of total bliss in the award winning spa. Those that know me, know that I have pestered my husband repeatedly for membership to the spa at Pennyhill Park and I haven’t given up hope (hint hint hubs). It is just amazing, there are so many different treatment rooms and pools you don’t know where to start. I am fairly certain we tried all of them, and the prosecco and a light snack (just to make sure all bases where covered) before we headed off to our amazing rooms to get ready for our show round and dinner.
Pennyhill park has 124 individually designed rooms and suites and no two are the same. I must have stayed in Pennyhill Park now at least seven times over the years and I have never been in the same room twice. They are seriously stunning with so much character and I know from experience that your meeting attendees will love them. They are gorgeous and all hi-tech with high speed Wi-Fi (comp) throughout and in-room IPads so anything you need to do/or order is just a click away.
In regards the meeting and event spaces you are also spoilt for choice. The main meeting rooms are the Balmoral and Sandringham and used in combination can take up to 200 theatre using the Sandringham for up to 50 or, as your breakout for teas and coffees.
There are a further 18 other rooms for meetings up to 80 guests all with natural daylight and all just perfect. You can see the capacity charts here. Alongside the fab meeting rooms are the latest av equipment and very tasty healthy snack boxes to give your meeting attendees tea breaks with a different. All included in their DDR.
After our site visit we headed off for dinner to the Brasserie which whilst is a casual dining experience holds 2 AA Rosettes and is also the main restaurant for breakfast each morning. Alongside the Brasserie, is Matt Workswick at The Latymer, Pennyhill Park’s Michelin Starred restaurant. You are really are spoilt for choice. Imagine hosting your board dinner in The Latymer?!
After dinner it was off to the bar for a few civilised drinks (ha ha) before heading off to bed, ready for a full day of the spa the following day. The bar at Pennyhill is fabulous, a mix of residents and dinner guests and such a lovely atmosphere with the live music. You could sit there for hours.
We would love to thank Pennyhill for their continued support of Eventprofslive and allowing us to bring our lovely members to see the venue that Kate and I have fallen in love with. It really does make for a stunning venue with exemplary service and wonderful staff. Thanks to Dom for hosting us as well, we can’t wait to come back.
