Our Guests Tell Us...

“I have always found the atmosphere there so warm and welcoming, as if I am being given space to refresh myself without undue intrusion.  The care given by all the staff is exemplary.  I love the 'family-feel' home cooking that seems to be very much a mark of the special kind of hospitality at Parcevall.”
 
“I have been visiting and staying at Parcevall Hall for over 10 years and have very much appreciated the warmth of welcome and hospitality shown by every one of the staff that I have met over this time.  There is a real culture of hospitality which pervades the place.  The way the gardens are managed so that even in the depths of winter they are accessible and beautiful is a real blessing. As well as visiting as part of a group, I have often stayed on an individual basis and have been able to find a peaceful part of the house even when there is a lot going on.”
 
"Thanks to you all once again for your hospitality. Perfect as usual. Parcevall has worked its magic yet again."
 
"I came laden with sorrow and the load became lighter. I felt safe and protected and I leave with a glow, a sense of serenity and peace."
 
“Parcevall Hall keeps getting better and better!”
 
“Underpinning all this is the tangible presence of the Lord; the mysterious factor that makes PH a retreat house, not a hotel, undefinably different. This I believe is due to PH being steeped in prayer, the dedicated staff & not forgetting the Chaplains. This tangible presence I know is felt by non-Christians who come for non-Christian meeting/conferences etc. They have asked ‘What is it that is so different about this place?’”
 
"I just wanted to say how much my group enjoyed their weekend at Parcevall Hall. They thought the venue was wonderful, they loved their rooms, the grounds, the food and the staff - helpful but unobtrusive was one comment I picked up.  As an organiser, I didn't have to worry about anything, it really could not have been better."
 
"We have been privileged again to spend creative time in this beautiful place. We have been well cared for and very well fed. Thank you. The house, the gardens and the views have worked their magic bringing peace and rest and delight. Who could ask for more?"
 
“We have always been delighted with everything provided and the weekend is a definite highlight in our church life.”
 
“We all enjoy being looked after, nothing is too much trouble”
