This April, our group of girls stayed at the Charnwood Forest Estate. In total we were 43 people. Owners of the house, Ros and Colin are very helpful and friendly. There is nothing that we could complain about, our stay was magical. Couple of years ago, we already stayed at the west wing of Ashby Manor for a hen party. This year we were a bigger group, so we decided to rent the entire venue. Both houses are clean and well equipped. Bathrooms and bedrooms are spacious. The gardens at the venue are of a very large size, with many chairs. There is a lot of room for inside and outside activities. We also enjoyed spa activities. I would recommend this place.

My wife and I, along with our friends decided to have a relaxing 3 nights break from an everyday life. We live close to the Charnwood Forest Estate, which was logistically ideal for all of our friends. The house is gorgeous, and very well kept. We were not celebrating anything, but recharging our batteries so all guests were very happily using the swimming pool and spa treatments. In our room, there was a beautiful roll top bath, which was fantastic! During entire stay, Ros and Colin were very helpful, polite and professional.

I just came back from the greatest hen party at this house. From the beginning to the end Ros and Colin were very helpful. (I did ask a lot of random questions). They also helped to organize a couple of activities, and it all went smoothly. All the activities could be done onsite, which was amazing! We used cinema area, spa treatments and even had a dance lesson. Recommend!
