I would just like to say it has been an excellent stay and thank you to all the staff. Comfy, clean accommodation, lovely setting. Excellent food (compliments to the chefs) and good service throughout, especially at mealtimes. A special thanks to Alan for taking us on our excursions and for checking my tyres for me, very much appreciated.

Chris, Watercolour Painting course, July 2019

A thoroughly great experience. Never thought at my age that anyone could teach me how to crochet, however Samira succeeded where all others failed. Will be back in 2019!

Linda, Knitting & Crochet course, September 2018

This course is always so enjoyable and instructive. The tutor is excellent and allows us to work on our own projects at our own pace whilst giving great advice, support and teaching. The atmosphere at Gartmore House is just amazing – making it feel like a home rather than a ‘centre’. The staff – every one of them is so friendly and interested in what is being created and how we are progressing, which is great. Thank you for another great weekend and we will be back!

Hilary & Roseanne, Patchwork & Quilting Course, January 2019

Thank you for everything – it was like paradise. Sometimes the food portions were too big! I don’t want to leave! I’ll be back for more painting courses. Great painting tutor. Fantastic company and location. Well done for all the restoration/decorating work in the bedrooms. Very comfortable, thank you! Exceptionally well looked after – thanks.
