  • Such a fantastic weekend!

    Posted by Cally on 16/04/2014

    I had to write to say a big thank you for such a fantastic weekend. My mum was so surprised by the whole weekend! The chateau was absolutely stunning - even better than the pictures - and every room was very special and unique.
    It has been a pleasure working with you towards this weekend, and everything has been done with such ease.

  • We will seriously consider returning to the Chateau

    Posted by J Simmonds on 16/04/2014

    We will seriously consider returning to the Chateau for future meetings. The combination of space, comfortable bedrooms, quiet ambience and proximity to the shops, restaurants and rail station made the week flow easily

  • We want to come back!
