… the band … particularly commented on how wonderful the venue was “the best they’ve ever played at”. We felt totally looked after for the whole day and night and appreciate your efforts
Rachel and Phil
Thanks, once again, for your wonderful hospitality on Sunday. We had a great day and there were many many complimentary comments about the venue. Looking forward to seeing you again in April.
Thank you so much for arranging our U3A visit to the garden last Wednesday. John’s ‘guided tour’ was nothing short of hospitality, with a wealth of stories and practical ideas. It was lovely to see your conservatory being used by the art group.
