Perfect stay for our extended family

We loved being able to have all our family and close friends staying all together in one location for the whole weekend - it made it feel more relaxing and fun.
Everyone had their own space to relax in but there was opportunity to gather together
We were lucky with the weather so we had a big family picnic on the lawn over looking the valley
Everyone said the wedding turned into a big family holiday and we brought three pet dogs!
We will definitely come back and stay for holidays
The owner was lovely she gave us time and advice and made everything as easy to arrange as she could. Her local contacts gave us interesting choices of foods and good rates for flowers and cabs to the church

We highly recommend champernhayes to any couple
