Yarnfield Park Testimonials
"What a fantastic week we spent with you at Yarnfield.
From the first night barbecue on Monday 1st June, to the impromptu dinner for our Producer and Cast later in the week, you and your colleagues were nothing short of amazing. Nothing was too much trouble and I felt there were many times when you all went that little bit extra to accommodate and assist us no matter what we asked you for!"
CRANFORD – BBC
"The Association of British Scrabble Players’ flagship event, the British Matchplay Scrabble Championship, found its new home at Yarnfield Park in 2005. At present I am in the final stages of planning our 5 th tournament there. BMSC is attended by entrants from all over the world (including Malaysia, Australia, Holland and Ireland), and in the top division there is fierce competition by English players because there is a place in the World Scrabble Championships at stake.
The venue itself is spacious, and it offers all we require in terms of playing areas and room to congregate elsewhere while games are still in progress. The bedrooms are always clean and the décor is pleasant and tidy.
What really makes Yarnfield Park stand out as an excellent venue is the way all staff are willing to go the extra mile to ensure that everything is as required.
My job as an organiser is made much easier and less stressful in the months of preparation for BMSC by the superb work done by Sue Ward and Emma Johnson, and I cannot speak highly enough of their efforts. Most of the time I liaise with Sue, and her friendly manner has come to mean a great deal to me. Of course, as we approach the 5 th Yarnfield Park BMSC, we have developed an understanding both of the requirements of the job, and of each other, and we make a great team.
On arrival at Yarnfield Park, we always receive a warm and friendly welcome. Everyone is pleasant, polite and efficient, from the duty managers to the people washing up in the kitchens and the housekeeping staff, and everyone in between. “Service with a smile” could be a phrase specifically invented for the Yarnfield Park Staff. Whilst there will always be the odd person who likes to find fault, BMSC entrants have, in the past, gone out of their way to say how much they like the venue, and in particular to comment on the friendly way they are greeted and looked after at Yarnfield Park. Nothing seems to be too much trouble.
The food is always beautifully cooked and presented, and is much appreciated by our hungry entrants. I am grateful to Chef for all his efforts in providing an appetising choice of food which caters for all our entrants, including those with food allergies and intolerances.
To anyone searching for a venue for their conference or event, I would heartily recommend they visit Yarnfield Park, where I am sure they will find the excellent service and accommodation they seek. I have no hesitation in saying that Yarnfield Park is a top-rate venue, and I can find no fault at all with the service we have received both at BMSC and throughout its planning stages."

" Outward Bound Professional has successfully designed and delivered a number of major team development initiatives from Yarnfield Park.
Our clients and our staff find that Yarnfield provides us with an excellent blend of outdoor space for experiential exercises and indoor conference and review rooms.
The capacity of the venue makes it quite unique, yet despite its size we benefit from excellent personal service before and during our programmes.
We look forward to developing our relationship with Yarnfield further and recognise the opportunities this venue has to offer.”
"Delivering training at Yarnfield Park is always a pleasurable experience. The technology is high quality and reliable, the rooms are well laid out and spacious but it is the staff that make Yarnfield stand out from their competitors. From the moment you make your initial enquiry you are made to feel welcome and know that the staff at Yarnfield are as committed to making your event a success as you are. Nothing is too much trouble and every request is dealt with quickly, efficiently and with a smile!
In addition to all this, the catering never fails to impress – real quality food, beautifully prepared. They cater for all tastes and really make an effort with the vegetarian food – something that many venues overlook. If you are looking to run a successful event in the Midlands then I would highly recommend Yarnfield Park."
