As a group, we found the staff on duty to be extremely helpful, friendly and caring. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they are obviously happy in their work and this was reflected in the way they acted with us. The food was plentiful and delicious, bedrooms were well received, we all loved the showers and everything was spotlessly clean.

Can you please send our thanks and appreciation to your Manager and the whole team for making the last 3 weeks stay at your conferencing facilities as smooth as possible in the current climate.

The Covid-19 pandemic brought huge uncertainty and the need to cancel and re-arrange our courses. I was so grateful to Emma and her team at Yarnfield Park for their pragmatic, no-nonsense approach to our canceling and later on again when re-booking. I have been particularly impressed by Yarnfield’s arrangements for social distancing and their approach to m...
