Gartmore House Team


I am extremely impressed with the quality of service and care given to the guests at Gartmore House. The place is warm and comfortable, the food is excellent and the staff are wonderful. I have visited before and will do so again. Thank you for facilitating what has been a wonderful break for me.

Lace Making Course Guest, September 2019

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 fantastic experience in a stunning location. Staff are fantastic – very helpful and flexible and always want to please. Thursday entertainment was excellent. Final dinner in dining room a nice touch. Thank you.

Charlie, Knitting & Crochet Course, May 2019

Have to rave about the front desk and wait staff – all excellent, efficient, friendly and accommodating. The meals totally rocked. Fresh, diverse, well-prepared and plated. So glad to have found this place. Really enjoyed my time here.

Mary-Lou, Patchwork & Quilting Course, March 2019

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!
