Corporate Days Out and Team Building
Would you like to inspire, motivate, and reward your team with an unforgettable experience?
Corporate days out are a great way of helping your team to work together and support each other, as well as helping to break the ice with new recruits. For many businesses, this can be the small margin that makes the big difference!
Whether you’re looking for a fun bonding day or an exciting and entertaining team building programme, How Stean Gorge offers an exhilarating mix of team building activities to offer truly unique and enjoyable corporate activity days.
We have some tried-and-tested corporate packages and we also tailor packages to meet your specific requirements – no request is too big or small and we want the day to be perfect for you and your team!
From our unique location in Upper Nidderdale we have access to some of the very best venues in Yorkshire (if not the country), and offer experiences from half day sessions to full expeditions and Challenge events. Choose from some of these exhilarating activities and challenge events close to home and further afield:
Climbing n Caving
Via Ferrata (1 of 3 in the UK)
Yorkshire 3 Peaks
National 3 Peaks Challenge

Our instructors are true outdoor professionals and are highly qualified in their individual areas of specialism.
They will safely guide your team through the challenges of the day.
Transport to Corporate Outdoor Activities
Most of our corporate outdoor activities are held directly on site here at How Stean Gorge, but it’s only a 15-minute drive away for the few activities that require travel to get to. To accommodate for this, we have our very own dedicated 16-seat minibus to transport our guests to the off-site activities. We can also collect our visitors from local train stations covering the east coast main line, including Leeds, York, Harrogate, and Thirsk – all of which are within an hour’s drive.
Accommodation & Facilities
We have a selection of accommodation options for smaller groups to largr groups:
3 Star Camping Park – With 30 tent pitches and 10 man tents available already erected with sleeping mats.
Bunkhouse – Our on-site bunk house is ideal for groups of up to 16, wishing to spend the night indoors.
Scar House Bunk Barn – Is our second bunk accommodation capable of sleeping up to 24 people over 2 large bedrooms, with self catering facilities, lounge and drying room.
We also have an onsite meeting and workshop space for up to 50 people, complete with refreshments.
Hotels & Fine Dining
If you fancy some added luxury in your package to celebrate your achievements out in the wild, we have some amazing local venues. Just three miles from our site sits ‘The Yorke Arms’ Michelin Star restaurant with rooms and, slightly further down the road, The Sportsman’s Arms Hotel & Restaurant, Wath. For large parties ‘Cedar Court Hotels Harrogate’ overlooking the famous 200 acre Stray, the magnificent hotel building is unique, and Grade II listed, with bags of character to complement the convenience of its prime North Yorkshire location. We also have fresh, home-made Yorkshire fare in our licensed restaurant where you can choose from an array of hot meals and, after your meal, why not try one of our desserts? The homemade pavlova has been a firm favourite for nearly 40 years now and the catering team always impress even when serving from remote locations around the dale.
When do sessions start?
Half-day sessions start at 9:30 and 14:00 daily. Full days start at 9:30. Saturday evenings are available for groups from 18:00-21:00 at an extra cost.
Please arrive around 30 minutes before the session start time to fill out a couple of medical forms.
How fit do I need to be?
Generally, most people are able to take part in the majority of our corporate outdoor activities, meaning that they are appropriate for most levels. A couple of our activities are ‘higher tier’, but feel free to get in touch and we can advise you.
What do I need to bring?
Our activity pages have a kit list section that explains what you need to bring and should wear, but we provide the specialist equipment.
Great campsite with excellent facilities. Our team of senior and junior executives camped for one night on site and then the second night up in a field with spectacular views of Dales. Our every whim (and there were many) was catered for by Stan and his team, who remained enthusiastic and un-phased by our requests weeks leading up to the event and during the event. Well worth a visit!Bea Thombs and Delia Kerry – Bain Capital Europe LLP
I would like to thank yourself, Claire & Stan for looking after us so well last Friday – we had a fantastic time and will definitely recommend you to any other people wanting to throw themselves off a bridge into freezing cold water!Unilever
We had a fabulous day at How Stean Gorge entertaining clients. Everyone was very excited to join us on the day and they certainly weren’t disappointed. Stan and his team put everyone at ease and ensured they enjoyed the activities. It was a great event for a mixed group and everyone interacted really well. We have received excellent feedback and will certainly look to take another group. Jenny Rennocks – Clarion Solicitors
