I have done a lot of weekends with Creative Stays and they have all been wonderful. The balance of fun and laughter, learning new things and meeting new people makes for such an enjoyable time. The planning and professional approach is obvious and the range of activities means it’s never boring.

Fantastic weekend, great organisation and a really relaxed atmosphere. Take it all at your own pace, do as much or as little as you like with no pressure. Perfect!

A really well organised weekend. I loved that you could take things at your own pace, but that you got the chance to try new things too. This creative lark can become addictive very quickly! Already looking forward to booking the next one.

Thanks to everybody for an excellent weekend. Was given it as a gift. Never done anything like this before. I would recommend it to anybody.

Loved it, this is perfect for people who think they don't have a creative bone in their body, turns out we all do, it's just a case of finding the right thing for you and your own area of creativity. I'm now hooked, a total creativity convert.

I was a little skeptical going in to this weekend as it was my friend's idea to go and I don't consider myself particularly arty, but I was made to feel very welcome and free to do as much or as little as I'd like. We had a great time, and I came home feeling rather refreshed. I think we'll be heading out for another trip soon :)

I spent my 40th birthday on one of these weekends. I was unsure as we are all creative in differing ways but due to the relaxed style we all enjoyed it equally.
