Here at Teemill we’re really happy to provide a heartfelt testimonial for the wonderful East Afton Farmhouse that we used as a venue for our leadership training and Company Day in September. Our event kicked off with presentations by our senior team in the Main Event Barn, complete with a stage, screens, and a sound system. The other barns provided ideal spaces for our breakout sessions. After the presentation, our team participated in a variety of activities, some held at East Afton and others at Tapnell, including Archery & Axe Throwing, Farm Park, Yoga, and Wellness Craft. We concluded the evening with a dinner, speeches, and live music. Regrettably, due to the storm, two activities—the Aqua Park and tree planting—had to be cancelled, but Chloe was very accommodating with these last minute changes.

The venue itself was a true gem, providing the ideal backdrop for our team day. It was perfect for our needs of providing a great experience for our team of 100. The event was catered using local suppliers and we used the onsite accommodation for our mainland and remote employees.

We’ve had great feedback from the day from our team and it was clear it boosted our employee engagement and team bonding. The accommodation worked well so our team didn’t have to hire cars and they could stay in the well-designed spaces with versatile amenities perfectly accommodating all of our needs. The main farmhouse had lots of functionality and we used the ground floor for our Leadership training sessions earlier on the week as well as hiring the upstairs of The Cow to facilitate this.

From the moment we began planning this event a few months prior, we were met with a warm and inviting atmosphere that set the tone for a fantastic week of Teemill events. One of the reasons we picked East Afton and Tapnell to use for our events was because of their commitment to sustainability and our shared values: the venues use renewable energy and they source from local suppliers.

Chloe was an exceptional coordinator who, along with Mel, made our team day an unforgettable experience and they were very easy and efficient to work with. Chloe played a pivotal role in making these days such a success. Her dedication and attention to detail in the planning stage were evident in every aspect of our event. The East Afton team helped us plan and organise each detail but also ensured that everything ran like clockwork on the day itself. Their positive attitude, responsiveness, and willingness to go the extra mile left a lasting impression on our team and we’ll be using them again.

I wholeheartedly recommend East Afton Farmhouse to anyone in search of the perfect island location and coordinators for their corporate events.

Thank you for making our day so special and memorable.
