If your idea of leisure is adrenaline-infused adventure sports, Warwickshire has plenty to offer. From fantastic water sports facilities to family-themed recreational attractions, the county has a superb range of adventure-themed attractions and hotels.
The Outdoor Activity Centre, Warwick
This outstanding 100-acre activity centre provides everything from climbing facilities and junior paintball to archery and treasure hunts, and is managed by a highly experienced team. It's particularly popular with families, who can stay at the nearby Little Longfield Stratford-upon-Avon hotel, which, like many Warwickshire hotels, offers a free breakfast, free WiFi and elegantly decorated rooms.
The centre is also a popular venue for corporate events, and organises many excellent team-building activities throughout the year, from adrenaline driving to country pursuits. In fact, employers can even build their own team-building event, or choose from one of the company's ready-made packages such as 'Lead & Succeed', which offers half-day leadership development sessions. If you're looking for a deluxe hotel nearby that offers first-rate corporate hospitality, you could book a stay at the opulent Bosworth Hall Hotel Spa & Leisure Warwickshire at The Park in Nuneaton.
