"The scenery was breath taking" by Smith & many Sons - July 2016
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.
