A perfect day


I cant believe that it is 2 weeks since we were in Derbyshire! I would like to thank you for Standlow ! We had the most wonderful time – the time in Daisy Cottage was perfect for all that had to be done for Bill & LIzzies wedding and as for High View Grange Farmhouse – well that was truly amazing, family & friends arrived safely and the oohs and aahs rang around everywhere from the brilliantly equipped games room, the beautifully decorated & appointed accommodation, the view – in fact everything was perfect. We are reasonably acqainted with self catering accommodation both in the U.K and abroad but nowhere comes near to Standlow – I am aware that the occassion was particularly happy but its wonderful success was in small part due to the quality and warmth of your wonderful venue.

A very special wedding

” After a call to yourselves we were introduced to Shiningford. still in its infancy as a wedding venue you accommodated our visit at very short notice. Believing the creative and imaginative plans you wanted to make we took a gamble …..
Low and behold everything ( and more) you stated would happen DID! Because of that we had an incredible stay at Shiningford. Words cannot describe how much of an amazing place this is. From greeting our weekend guests in the courtyard, enjoying a BBQ on the Friday night, a fresh morning swim followed by a warm jacuzzi. A full day of celebrating Saturday through to sober Sunday with the fires blazing and a chance to really soak in the warmth the house provides – This really was a dream house, not just for ourselves but everyone staying with us.
Thank you ever so much for creating such a memorable part of our wedding celebrations, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay.”
