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...

"Better than ever!"
 
"Thank you for the wonderful stillness and peace and hospitality."
 
“The best breakfasts we have ever had on holiday and we have had some good ones. Really good food!”
 
"A memorable Christmas - every element of feasting, fellowship and worship. Thank you indeed."
 
“I hear many compliments upon the setting, bedrooms, meeting rooms and the chapel as well as the good food and other aspects of peoples' stays. Trainees find their time with you inspirational and value the quiet setting.”
 
“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?’”
 
“We all love the tasty comfort food and it does help us feel looked after”
 
“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.”
 
"I have only praise for beautiful Parcevall Hall – it’s been a haven for me at times"
 
“The Staff who remember everyone, their families names, their problems etc. There are not enough words to appreciate & praise them all enough, nothing is too much trouble, the care & feeling of being enfolded into your family at PH is beyond compare.”
