"I would like to thank you and all your staff on behalf of all Kate's Hens for a lovely weekend away. We were touched by all the personal service we received from you and all your tireless help and advice on the activities. The massage was out of this world, Vanessa's team are to be highly recommended to others. We also had a fab Sunday roast at The Bell which was delicious and good value." Hen party weekend
