In DeSouza Associates, Team Building, Venue of the Season

Lainston House is currently featured on our website as our Venue of the Season. They have a new addition to their facilities ‘Season’ a kitchen and cookery school which we thought was worth blogging  about to highlight that we can also book culinary team building events as well as the more traditional team building activities, games and exercises


Why not try a culinary event for your next team building event ?




With the rise of Masterchef and Bake Off we have noticed Cookery events and culinary team building challenges are fast becoming the preferred way to bring people together, and cooking together as a team is a fantastic way to bond with your colleagues and friends.


Season cookery school is located in a historic 17th century Well House in the beautiful grounds of Lainston House and is packed with traditional features such as exposed brickwork and wooden beams however the facilities are modern with contemporary kitchen appliances and equipment.

For the corporate market you can book the venue exclusively for up to 24 delegates where  you will enjoy a seven hour class creating first a lunch dish which you can enjoy over a glass of wine and in the afternoon a dinner dish that you can take home. You will also receive unlimited tea and coffee throughout the day, an apron, recipes and a gift to take home.  How about making your own burgers under the guidance of the
Cookery School chef and then enjoy the fruits of your labour in the relaxing space of the well house dining area. Other short team building courses include Bread Making, Sushi Making, Pasta Making and Classic Cake Making


Lunch !

Half day options are also available, which fit in well with a meeting in the morning followed by an afternoon session
cooking. ‘Season’ can also offer the opportunity to finish the day or start the evening with Wine tasting or a Cocktail making class.

The Victoria Kitchen Garden is perfect for summer evening receptions, the outdoor cooking space allows for a BBQ in the sunshine. Lainston House offers a ‘pick your own Pimms’ session where delegates can explore the allotments and enjoy the fresh taste of handpicked Cucumbers, Mint and Strawberries. And if you’re after entertainment; the garden homes Birds of Prey which can perform for you in a Falconry display.
