"Just perfect for all our friends and extended family"
by Mansell family - July 2016
We chose Shiningford for my husbands 50th celebrations and it was just perfect for all our friends and extended family. From the moment we arrived the weekend was just perfect. We all enjoyed the swimming pool and the hot tub despite the weather . We walked the trail on the Sunday morning to walk off the excessive after-effects of Saturday night and the scenery and fresh air completed the weekend. Thank you
"The scenery was breath taking"

Just a quick email to say thank you for providing such a great venue for our annual family holiday. The accommodation was clean, comfy and catered for all our needs. I organise this annual event and it becomes difficult to find a venue to suit all ages, but Shiningford definitely did. We are already looking at coming back again next year.
"Just perfect for my celebration"
by Davies Family - Xmas 2016
My husband booked this as a surprise for me and it was just what I needed after such a traumatic year. Everyone loved the house and gardens and we have so many memories to keep of the time we shared together.
I have recommended Shiningford to so many people since we returned that I am not surprised that you are already booked for Xmas next year.
"I am happy to recommend it to anyone!"
