Highrise Digital retreat #2 – Clifford Chambers

In order to get together the members of our remote working team, we spent just over 2 days at a beatiful cottage in the small village of Clifford Chambers, near the town of Strafford-upon-Avon. We had a thoroughly enjoyable and productive time.

Retreats are really important for us as we are a remote working company and this was the second one we had been on. It is a great opportunity to get to know the team a little better and of course get some valuable time together to complete some tasks.

It was two bedroom with a third bed located on a mezzanine floor above the main living space – that was designated my bed and it was pretty comfy. I slept with the stars out of the window to my side which was really nice.
