Team Building

Nestled within 130 acres of beautiful grounds in the heart of the Essex countryside, Lifehouse is the perfect location for your team building activity. Offering an exclusive venue that feels a world away from everyday life, Lifehouse is easy to access by car and train and has plenty of space for outdoor activities including dedicated grounds for outdoor group activities.

Are you looking for team building activities designed to challenge, inspire and engage your team members? Or looking to reward your workforce with an exciting activity? Our in-house events team will tailor the perfect team building day to your group size and budget.

We’ve teamed up with local team building activity suppliers that have a host of options, from Bushcraft and Geotagging to Archery, Axe Throwing and even Mountain Biking. Together we are able to provide team focused experiences that are inspiring, memorable, engaging and most importantly, fun! Ensuring these type of team building and team development events are designed to fit the aims and objectives of your business is key, whilst in a location that makes you feel far from the office.

Why not couple in a themed evening during a private dining experience with us, with a host of Murder Mystery themes to choose from. Or why not visit the nearby East Coast Distillery for an exlcusive gin tour and tasting experience. The options are truly wide and varied, and we can tailor your day to suit.

In addition, with corporate wellness becoming more of a hot topic Lifehouse is also the perfect place to hold corporate wellness talks and workshops.  With a wealth of in-house knowledge, we are able to offer talks in subjects such as time management, positive communication, good sleep & restfullness and meditation & mindfullness workshops.

A short drive away in the sea-side town of Frinton-on-sea, we partner with both Frinton Tennis Club and Frinton Golf Club where we can offer group rates. Frinton-on-Sea beach is also an ideal location for team building activities or a walk along the promenade.

Contact us today for a quotation, which will be based on requirements and group sizes.

Crafted's CCO Brad shares their recent experience...  

"Crafted’s summer party was a phenomenal success. It was by far the largest teambuilding event we’ve undertaken so far and with the support & expertise of the team from Lifehouse it ran perfectly and was enjoyed by our 70+ guests.

Our plan was to combine a wedding-style evening party with a day of activities which catered for all our staff. At one end of the spectrum we were able to offer yoga in the quiet & peaceful gardens and at the other end we had teams of clay pigeon shooting in the hotel’s fields. In addition, we were all able to make use of the spa facilities to relax & unwind before getting changed for the evening’s events.

The evening party was centred in tipi tents with an outdoor bar and an elegant BBQ, followed by a live band complete with light show and an amazing fireworks display.

As our staff and their +1s were able to stay in the hotel that night, they all had the benefit of a superb breakfast and the use of the spa the following day to ease any aching heads and feet.

All elements of the event worked seamlessly – not least as Lifehouse provided a full complement of staff to run everything without our senior team having to be involved leaving us to enjoy the party too. From preparing the grounds with lighting and signage, to keeping the bar open for nightcaps; people were on hand to look after us.

The planning ahead of the day was key to the success. We had several meetings and discussions with Jordan and the wider team (grounds staff, chef, etc) to make sure all aspects were covered. Their recommendations for activities we could do, running order of the day and what should be on the menu were all well-thought out and ultimately made the whole event such a brilliant experience for us all.

We can’t wait to do it all over again!"

The Royal Bank of Canada shares their experience...

"I have visited Lifehouse several times for a relaxing break to enjoy the spa, treatments and delicious food, little did I know that Lifehouse is so much more than just a spa.

On speaking with  the Corporate Sales Manager, I discovered Lifehouse was home to a number of activities to host a Team Offsite.  I worked with him to organise the perfect event, we stayed for 1 night, had a fantastic 3 course dinner and  the following day we took part in a morning of Archery and an afternoon of Clay Pigeon Shooting.  Every detail was taken care of from transport from the Station to the external activity companies, and not forgetting the correct amount of bottles of our wine order!  The staff at Lifehouse went above and beyond to ensure our event ran as smoothly as possible and their attention to detail was second to none.  A special thanks to the team for their professionalism in organising the event and making us feel so welcome.

I would highly recommend a visit, whether it be for a relaxing spa break or an adventure activity, Lifehouse can provide you with everything you need!"
