THE TEAM

Like any establishment, the service our guests receive is only as good as the people looking after them.

At Parcevall Hall, we have a small but very dedicated team of staff, some of whom have been serving our visitors for over 20 years.

As well as cooks, housekeepers, front of house and “backroom” staff, our chaplain is available for services, quiet days, parish weekends, or just to meet individuals for confession, prayer or a confidential chat.

Our Guests Tell Us...

“We have always been delighted with everything provided and the weekend is a definite highlight in our church life.”
 
“The house allows you to ‘be’ in God’s presence & you are uninterrupted especially in silent retreats. The house itself ministers to you, as I discovered on my first ever visit when all the ‘God’ bits went over my head.”
 
"Many thanks for a wonderful experience.  What a beautiful house.  The staff are marvellous."
 
“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.”
 
"A feast of delight in every respect. Thank you."
 
“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?’”
 
"What a glorious location in sunshine and snow! Far away from the city, a place of peace to be returned to. Thank you."
 
"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."
 
“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.”
 
"So great to be back in this very welcoming environment - the house, the gardens, the hills - and most importantly, the staff!"
