Corporate & Team Events

Looking for a fun, interactive and dynamic event for your team? Or perhaps a way for you to reward your clients, or your workers? We have many immersive courses to choose from.

Kitchen-oriented Team Events

At our cookery school, with its central chef’s table and fully equipped work-stations, we can create a bespoke event for you. It can be as formal or informal as you like but we find that guests inevitably relax in Rupert’s company. As well as the delicious elevenses (coffee & cookies), our corporate participants also love the collaboration and kitchen camaraderie (and maybe even competition!) that features in a work-related event or team-building day.

We often ask our cookery school students to work in pairs. This is a great way to get people to work closely together who might not normally have that opportunity, or who might not naturally choose to do so.

During the day you will be gathered around the chef’s table for welcome drinks and then for demonstrations and, later, lunch. Throughout the Philleigh Way day there’s a lot of chat, laughter and hands-on practical experience: perfect for those who may spend most of their working lives at a computer. Our aim is to make it a happy day for all our guests, full of fun and goodwill.

But don’t just take our word for it, some feedback from a few happy clients!

Cornwall NHS Trust in February 2024:

Thank you so much for the away day today, it was such a fantastic session.  All of the team enjoyed the cooking and the atmosphere and venue is superb. “

We are so grateful for the attention and support you have gave us today and we all learned so much

B&Q team building event hosted at Philleigh Way in July 2022:

“It was a great afternoon it was great fun and good to learn new skills together. I have made the pasties for the family since and am planning to attempt scones with my grandson this weekend !!.

It was also a great team activity and good to spend time in a lovely environment with the team.

Our instructors were patient and funny which meant the time flew – a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon which I would highly recommend”

We can help you organise the logistics of the day as well as delivering bespoke courses for your team and will be here to ensure the day runs smoothly;

“it was so lovely to speak to someone who is so passionate about the job they do, and so accommodating and helpful. You really made a difference to my day in that it was so easy to sort out the day for them. I was thrown a curveball the week before we were due to come to Cornwall and it made such a difference to speak to someone who made my life easier!” (B&Q)

Alternative Philleigh Way Events

Your team event doesn’t have to be a cooking course. It could involve foraging, fishing, knife skills or photography, or any of the experiences that our experts offer.

Conference Space

Are you hosting an important meeting where you really need to make an impact? Or perhaps you need to deliver a powerful group presentation away from the regular workplace? Impress your clients and colleagues by inviting them to Philleigh Way. We have access to a large conference space with all you need to host your business meeting and then back to the Cookery School for some refreshments, a cookery class, lunch – above all, a fun and unique experience!

Thanks to our event catering you can also host a delicious bespoke lunch or supper of your choosing, on site, either indoors, or in our woodfired courtyard, depending on the weather and the numbers.

Set in a superb location in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the change of scenery will certainly make for a memorable day out. Our team will ensure the smooth running of your event by providing an excellent level of service with all those personal and professional touches that help to guarantee an event’s success. We take care of everything for you, so that you can channel all your energies into your colleagues and delegates.

Our Philleigh Way goody bags are a great way to remember the day by.  The contents often change with the seasons and the tides, and whatever has taken Rupert’s fancy. What you get is always a surprise!

A bespoke goody bag, however, can be made up of carefully chosen items that would suit your partner, family or team. Examples include Philleigh Way dough blades, recipe cards and tea towels, and samples of excellent local produce such as pots of Cornish Sea Salt, Cornish seaweed or small bottles from a vast array of Cornish gin. Anything is possible, simply discuss your ideas with a member of our team.

Please email or call 01872 580893 to discuss.

Location For Hire

We are the perfect location for a culinary photo-shoot or filming.

Philleigh Way’s kitchen is versatile, contemporary yet charming, and entirely equipped. We also have the woodfire for larger and more dramatic outdoor shoots. The surrounding countryside – bordered by creeks, farmland, woods and sea – is stunning, which is why some brands have found that outside shots often compliment those taken in the Philleigh Way interior.

Our former clients include the internationally acclaimed Cornish Sea Salt, and ProQ Smokers. We have great facilities and photo opportunities for any country brand. For location hire pricing please contact Rupert direct on or 01872 580893.

Catering For Crews and Teams

We can cater for your crew or team. We can feed them either here on site at Philleigh, or on location. Our versatility and variety knows no bounds.

Please call us on 01872 580893 or to discuss.
