The 380-acre resort employs more than 200 people across two modern conference venues, a four-star hotel, spa and an 18-hole golf course.

And the good news comes after a tough year for the resort which suffered half a million pounds losses each month during the height of the pandemic with 97 people being made redundantAccolades from Best Companies are regarded among the UK’s most comprehensive and coveted, with a rigorous process determining the merits of organisations from all industries, by assessing the methods in which they encourage, motivate and engage with their employees.

The list is compiled using scores (on a scale of 1 to 1,000) from employees’ responses to questions within the Best Companies survey on a range of factors including leadership, pay and work-life balance. Ratings are then determined from that score, ranging from ‘One to Watch’ to one star acknowledged as ‘very good’, two stars as ‘outstanding’ and three stars as ‘world class’.
