Wyboston Lakes Resort will mark 40 years of trading from its site in Bedfordshire this year with several events and activities.
Purchased in September 1983, the 380-acre site in Bedfordshire featured a fledgling golf course at the time. The founder, Peter Hutchinson created Wyboston Lakes Resort to form part of an already successful portfolio of businesses. His entrepreneurial vision and investment allowed for exponential growth year on year, and four decades on, the business continues to flourish and operate with input from three generations of the Hutchinson family. It is the culture, developed from these family values that attracts customers from far and wide to the diverse, but complementary range of services. The resort has continued to invest and grow culminating in a record business year in 2022.
The resort now offers two contemporary residential training and event centres, a four-star hotel, brasserie, several bars, award-winning spa, 18-hole golf course, health and leisure club, and a water sports centre which is ideal for teambuilding activities. The resort also has a nature reserve, serviced offices, co-working spaces, branded training space, and land for future enterprise.
An estimated 250,000 people pass through the Wyboston Lakes Resort each year, and the business now generates an annual turnover of tens of millions of pounds. The business is a Real Living Wage employer and has also been recognised with a long line of awards including being one of the Best Companies to work for nine consecutive years, as well as multiple accolades for its meeting and events business, sustainability credentials, its spa and hotel.
Chelsey Hutchinson, chair of Wyboston Lakes Resort, said: “We have made major investments in developing and refurbishing all areas of the site over the years, with our customers – both national and local – our people and sustainability always front of mind. We will continue to evolve to meet their needs while actively contributing to support our communities.”
