WELCOME TO PARCEVALL HALL

Our Guests Tell Us...

“It is such a treat to be away from the telephone, the TV, the menu planning, the washing up and there’s no-one needing a clean shirt.”
 
"A lovely place and we have many happy memories of church weekends there"
 
“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.”
 
“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?’”
 
“Parcevall Hall offers a lovely warm welcome in beautiful surroundings and the ambience of the hall adds to this, and as a regular visitor for many years to this place I feel that that in itself is a compliment. I look forward to each of my visits knowing that I will, when the time comes, once again leave feeling relaxed and refreshed after being looked after by staff that have become more like friends.”
 
"Thank you once again.  You take such care of us.  A lovely tranquil start to the season.  Smashing food!"
 
"A memorable Christmas - every element of feasting, fellowship and worship. Thank you indeed."
 
"I have only praise for beautiful Parcevall Hall – it’s been a haven for me at times"
 
“The best breakfasts we have ever had on holiday and we have had some good ones. Really good food!”
 
"So great to be back in this very welcoming environment - the house, the gardens, the hills - and most importantly, the staff!"
