When a venue claims they “have something for everyone”, at Votel Venues, we like to put this to the test and give it our venue verdict. Formby Hall Golf Resort and Spa was one of these claimant properties.

Regarded by event planners and business leaders alike as one of the finest, well-equipped facilities in the North West for meetings, conferences and corporate events. We wanted to dig a little deeper to discover the holistic offerings at Formby Hall. Why? Because we know our client’s needs and we live in the age of experiences and high expectations. Driven by this desire to always give our clients an unforgettable event, stay and experience, we visited Formby Hall to be engulfed in all its glory!

Formby Hall - Golf Course View

Situated close to Southport, just 13 miles from Liverpool and set in the breathtaking countryside, this property also benefits by being near to beautiful beaches, forests and an abundance of culture on its doorstep. From football clubs, art galleries and museums, to wildlife reserves and botanical gardens. Not to mention their own luxurious dining options that indulge in delicious, seasonal menus for sociable or private events.

Firstly it’s important to mention that their private rooms and event spaces are second to none, offering 4 luxurious private event suites – the largest of which caters up to 300 guests as well as having its own private terrace. Perfect for banqueting or large meetings that may require a revitalising break out area. You can expect the latest audio-visual technology to enhance both your conference or social event and to be absolutely sure of what your getting, they have created 3D tours that you can experience online before your visit, a great way to visualise your space options!

It’s a no brainer that a venue that is nestled in the countryside needs to come complete with excellent accommodation, ample parking and leisure activities to entice us to utilise their corporate event spaces! Formby Hall luckily does not disappoint on all these fronts. There is complimentary car parking for up to 460 cars and a selection of 76 stunning newly refurbished contemporary bedrooms.

So what can you do here? Well, Formby Hall is champion at forging the feeling of hashtag – weekend vibes, any day of the week! The spa and health club is a great way to unwind and treat your team after an intense meeting or event. If you play golf, you can improve your skills and enjoy a round on the 18 hole championship courses. Or if you fancy something more active, why not hire a bike and go and explore the local beaches and countryside! These are just a handful of the things you can do during your stay.

But what about activities your whole team can enjoy in, perhaps you’re thinking about investing in your employees with a beneficial away day to enhance productivity and creativity. Formby Hall has some surprising and quite frankly humourous options! They are not shy here of challenging the norm, take duck herding for an example! Yes, you picture this right, wellies, mud, running in circles and lots of laughs! I’m sure there is an art to this but we will leave this one to the experts!

Choose from a range of indoor and outdoor activities, including speeding down the lanes on a segway or taking aim and fire with clay shooting and archery lessons (preferably at your targets and not at your teammates!).

Alternatively, there is enough space on site to bring in an event activity partner for a bespoke activity. I rest my case…

So what’s our venue verdict? Formby Hall is guaranteed to inspire and motivate a workforce, mellow out and recharge your brain and body as well as make you giggle and create some everlasting memories!
