A Day In The Country, leave office behind is an award winning Corporate Events, Team Building and Conference venue based on the Oxfordshire / Northamptonshire border. Established over 25 years ago as a family-run business, A Day in the Country offers a very personal and specialised service to clients, and its Directors have a wealth of experience as Event Managers. A Day in the Country prides itself on being able to organise any event to suit precise requirements, and is renowned for its standards of service and attention to the  smallest detail. From organising a major product launch to a  small conference, A Day in the Country is an ideal venue for your corporate event, whether it’s an activity or team building day, meeting, product launch or conference.

"A Day in the Country has won several Marketing Week/Corporate Hospitality Association Awards and Certificates of Merit over the years, including Venue of the Year (twice), Small Business of the Year and Event Managers of the Year"

The venue is set in a 250 acre estate, featuring three trout lakes surrounded by woodland. The hospitality area and conference suite are housed in a magnificent 18th century barn, which has been sympathetically converted to offer the best of both worlds; open log fires combine with the sophistication of a modern conference and hospitality suite. Corporate activities range from Clay Shooting, Archery, Air Pistol Shooting, Rage Buggies, 4×4 Driving, Tractor Driving, Falconry, Hovercraft driving to Team Building Exercises and our Ropes Course and Raft Building.
