Your experience starts with arrival at the church anytime from 4pm. Take some time to explore your home from home – there’s a lot to take in! – and settle into your comfortable rooms. Then you might like to jump straight into the relaxing hot tub in the courtyard garden to discuss what you’ve planned for the rest of the weekend – maybe with a glass of chilled sparkling wine. Let the cares of your long week float away. Your wonderful getaway break has just begun – the rest is up to you!
