We used Charnwood Forest Estate for a yoga retreat. Absolutely perfect place to relax breathe and recharge.

For my parents 30th wedding anniversary, we rented out the Ashby Manor South Wing. We were 14 adults and 4 kids. 2 years ago I already visited on a hen do, and I was very surprised how Ros and Colin upgraded everything, especially the spa area. The flower arrangements in the hall definitely added the wow factor. The highlight of the weekend was the swimming pool, the whole family really enjoyed it. My daughter keeps asking me to go back! I definitely recommend!

Even though we booked West Wing, we were upgraded to the South Wing the morning of our arrival. 50th birthday celebration could not be better. We were just 10 of us, and everyone had a room of their own. We booked catering services and enjoyed the swimming pool and the hot tub.
