The Future Firm at Eaton Manor: Case Study & Testimonial

  • Company: The Future Firm
  • Website: www.thefuturefirm.com
  • Venue: All of Eaton Manor Country Estate
  • Date: January 2018
  • Participants: 17 Delegates; 5 Facilitators
  • Duration: 4 nights

Company Background:

The Future Firm started in 2007 with the belief that developing businesses is about experiencing and serving communities, and that great leaders are first of all great human beings. They help facilitate company retreats and let participants experience that creative business development is above all about human development.


Our recommendations: the Eaton Manor staff for their flexibility and great communication both before and during our stay, as well as good connections with other suppliers e.g. Oak Apple Catering and local transport.

The houses are well equipped and met our expectations and standards for corporate business.”


The Future Firm chooses unique locations for their clients, not standard conference/meeting locations, and so Eaton Manor suited this due to its location and rural environment, as well as the fact that the properties were up to their standards for their corporate clients e.g. well-equipped and comfortable, with en-suite facilities.


  • Eaton Manor provided the ideal venue, in a quiet location with a wide variety of amenities.
  • The participants had full use of the countryside estate, staying across 7 houses allowing single occupancy for all.
  • The Banqueting Room was the venue for early morning Yoga to energise everyone each day.
  • Toad Hall’s Rogan Room served as the location for the group’s main day time sessions during the week.
  • Oak Apple Catering (local caterers) provided some evening meals and lunches.
  • The group also went to a local pub, The Ragleth, and a local restaurant, Housman’s, for evening meals on their last 2 nights, for which they used local taxi companies as transport.

In what ways did Eaton Manor go the ‘extra mile’ to make your stay a success?
“We really appreciated your flexibility, willingness, involvement and all the help you gave us to organise our week at Eaton Manor. People give a location “a soul” and that little extra helps us to choose a location. Thank you again for all the help! Also suppliers like Oak Apple Catering helping us with the catering and last-minute changes. With all of you we had the feeling that service and hospitality are one of your top priorities and really had the feeling that every request / question / change was not a problem / burden and that this is what you stand for; helping your clients to make their stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible.”

Beagle Technology Group at Eaton Manor: Case Study & Testimonial

  • Company: Beagle Technology Group
  • Website: www.beagletechnologygroup.com
  • Venue: Toad Hall and Curlew Cottage
  • Date: May 2016
  • Delegates: 12
  • Duration: 4 nights

Company Background: Beagle Technology Group specialise in the manufacture of complex metallic assemblies, using a variety of methods. Their 80,000 sq.ft manufacturing facility is located in Dorset.

“Eaton Manor is an exceptional venue which we have found to be really useful for our needs as a business for our offsite events. The living area is in very good condition and provided an extremely relaxing atmosphere. We would definitely recommend Eaton Manor to other businesses looking for a quiet location to focus on important planning.”

Brief: Beagle Technology Group required a quiet location, void of distraction so they could discuss important business expansion and planning. They needed living space which provided a relaxing atmosphere; moreover it was crucial to have a separate space to discuss business, so that delegates could keep the right frame of mind for strategy planning. They also required facilities useful for their activities and amenities to be situated close by.


  • Eaton Manor provided the perfect venue, in a quiet location with a wide variety of amenities. The twelve guests had plenty of living space across Toad Hall and Curlew Cottage, with a mixture of single occupancy and twin rooms.
  • The Banqueting Room at Eaton Manor was the venue for their full day meetings, where they had full use of flip charts, projectors, screens, high speed wi-fi and catering facilities.
  • Their first evening involved an orientation of the estate and a team catch up.
  • On the second evening, they had an informal dinner, followed by a drumming session with Tom Morley.
  • Their third evening involved taking a taxi to a restaurant in nearby town, Ironbridge (also a World Heritage Site).
  • On their final day, the group enjoyed an afternoon of free time to relax. A three course dinner was provided by Oak Apple Catering at Toad Hall. They then had a social evening, making good use of Eaton Manor’s games room.

In what ways did Eaton Manor go the ‘extra mile’ to make your stay a success?
“Packing away our shopping before arrival and setting up the banqueting hall with a projector and screen was really helpful. They also provided us with an alternative venue on the estate for our formal meeting, as a charity event was taking place at Eaton Manor.”
