Gastronomy Dark Skies Night

Thank you so much for helping us to create the perfect wedding day - the gardens were beautiful, the food was fantastic and the service was exceptional!  We couldn't have asked for a better team to help our day go off without a hitch.

"a very high standard"

You have a wonderful set up here and the passion that you feel for having everything to work well and to such a very high standard is a credit to your careful and knowledgeable attention to detail.  The beautiful surroundings as in décor and well maintained gardens and the obvious delight that those who work for you at all levels have, creates a wonderful place for guests to be nurtured.  I feel very privileged to have enjoyed this week staying here.
