THE TEAM

We have a small and dedicated team of cooks, housekeepers, front of house
and backroom staff who keep the Hall running smoothly. They make a valuable
contribution to the Hall’s atmosphere of welcome.

Many of you will know Parcevall Hall’s long-serving Chaplain, Graham Bettridge.
He is available for quiet days and services, and time with Graham can be arranged
through the Hall for confession, prayer or a confidential chat.

Our Guests Tell Us...

"The meal was very good indeed and the dining room was a delight. I think that people shared my thrill in being in such a memorable old building for the celebration; thank you very much indeed for making this possible."
 
"Absolutely great"
 
"As close to heaven on earth as is possible - I think!  Wonderful in every way"
 
"Relaxing, inspiring weekend with excellent hospitality"
 
“Somehow, the house is greater than any one individual, yet all the individuals are needed to supply warmth and care. It is a soulful place where people have the time to listen; and the 'lost, low and lonely' have the time to speak and be heard without interruption.”
 
“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 is a wonderful place!  It is comfortable, homely, welcoming and the food is amazing.  It is in a beautiful setting and the gardens are beautiful too.  All the staff are friendly and helpful - nothing is ever a bother, and the general atmosphere is warm and relaxing.”
 
“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.”
 
“All staff members are warm, friendly and attentive. Food is consistently good. Home cooking at its best, well planned with thought to detail.”
 
"Thank you for all your kind, generous, thoughtful and excellent hospitality."
