Event description

Description

What is it? An expertly facilitated walking, thinking, networking and coaching experience in the beautiful Mendip Hills just south of Bristol. We will be walking a loop from the Burrington Inn that takes in Dolebury Warren and an Iron Age fort. The route is a mix of wooded and open landscapes, with views over Somerset, the Bristol Channel, and over to South Wales. This is one of a series of Fresh Air Business Walks, also known as Hacks - half-day, sunrise, and multi-day treks. Read more here.

Who is it for? A small group of 8 senior business leaders. Or a formed team. Get in touch if you want something bespoke.

Why do it? 

  • Some leaders seek "timeout" to relax, and draw energy and inspiration from stunning natural environments.

  • Others value the space to think more clearly and creatively about big challenges and choices.

  • And others love bouncing and building fresh ideas in the group environments we create.

  • Some organisations have used Fresh Air Hacks as outdoor alternatives to indoor meetings – for executive boards, strategy reviews, and meetings with clients.  

  • Finally, there’s increasing media coverage and scientific evidence around the health, relationship, and creative thinking benefits of the outdoors.  

Why wouldn’t you want to tap into some of this goodness?! 

Where are we meeting? Is there car parking?

We will start the walk at 13:30 from outside the Burrington Inn, Burrington Combe, North Somerset, BS40 7AT. You can use the Inn car park (on the understanding the Inn will benefit from your custom), or the free car parks either side of this. There is a pubic toilet in the southern car park (in addition to the Burrington Inn).


We will be back by16:00.

Who is leading this event?

Dave Stewart, Managing Director of The Fresh Air Learning Company will lead the walk. In addition to being a highly experienced leader and coach, he is also a qualified Mountain Leader with in-date outdoor first aid qualifications.  Read more here:

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

How fit do I need to be? How far are we walking?

  • The route is undulating with a couple of short inclines. Good paths throughout.

  • The total distance is 6kms/4 miles.

  • We will be walking at a pace which allows people to talk comfortably, and we will be stopping every 30 minutes.

  • If you are in any doubt about your ability to undertake this walk, consult your GP and the organisers.

What clothing & equipment will I need?

  • Walking boots or sturdy footwear with good grip, and ideally ankle support. Wellies are not suitable.

  • Waterproof over-trousers and water-proof jacket. Let us know if you need help with these.

  • A spare warm layer for stops.

  • Warm headgear and gloves, or sun-hat according to weather forecast.

  • Your own snacks and water (1 litre).

  • Personal medication as required.

  • Small rucksack 

Note that we are able to provide participants with a 15% discount code for their sole use at Cotswold Outdoor, one of UK's leading outdoor clothing and equipment retailers. We will send you details once you book your place.

What about bad weather?

Bad weather can be a source of tremendous insight and creativity. The walk will therefore go ahead in all but the most extreme weather. The route may be modified to make the best of conditions, and we will carry temporary shelters. Your leaders are highly qualified and experienced outdoor leaders,  and will ensure everyone has a safe walk.
