Brilliant weekend. Great venue, delicious food. So good to lay out all your bits and leave them there all weekend. The best part, though is the company. Lots of like minded ladies, all willing to share their expertise.
Linda is a lovely person who makes it all happen and shares our love of crafting of all kinds.
Such a lovely weekend, first time I’d been with my friend and it was clear that this was a regular retreat for some ladies - they made us feel so welcome, great value for money, accommodation was clean and tidy (and you hardly spend any time in your room when you have 24hr access to your projects). Food was tasty and lots of it (loved the homemade cakes on offer all day), beautiful grounds to walk in, I’ve not found anything quite like it that gives you the freedom and space to do your own projects you’ve brought with you, we’ll definitely be back!
Just back from four days here, my first longer stay. Had a wonderful time, relaxed, shared and learned skills& made friends.
It’s a lovely place to stay, good food and pleasant grounds to wander in. I managed to complete a lot of scrapbooking, my favourite craft. Having room to spread everything out and interrupted time to work is great. Highly recommended. I have booked two weekends for next year and may try to squeeze in another.
Another fab weekend had by all. Super location, accommodation and food. Looking forward to the three booked for next year.
Excellent weekend. Took my sewing machine and had fun with everyone. Lots of laughter. I go four times a year and next year slipping another one in.
Made fab friends and love that I can do a variety of crafts. Linda the host is fantastic and makes sure everyone is looked after at a fab venue.
Wonderful craft weekend as always making new friends and revisiting old friends, great mix of crafts and sharing of ideas. Thank you Linda for being such a great host and look forward to the next one.
Great value for money, lovely atmosphere and well organised. Linda takes care of the details so you can devote your time and attention to your crafting. This is my second visit and my only slight negative this time is that the lighting is poor in the main craft room when daylight fades. As Linda suggests, you must take your own table top lighting.
Great weekend away, large table to spread out, great people really helpful, plenty of food.
I have a great time every time with lovely (and funny) people.
If crafting is your thing then I can highly recommend this weekend.
One of the highlights of my year !!! I share a room with my mum, which is fun in itself ! From start to finish it’s full on fun and crafting... we try and stay up as late as possible to get as much done. Crafting rooms are huge with plenty of space to spread out. The food is excellent and plentiful!! You can have a go at different workshops and learn something new. I love the page challenges, the page swaps and the evening game/quiz . All set in beautiful grounds and run by the very lovely Linda. What’s not to like??
Most fabulous weekend away. I only make it once a year but love the friendly atmosphere, useful advice and all in comfortable surroundings with good food and such good value for money. You must keep them up Linda!
Wonderful weekend when I can relax and craft with likeminded ladies. Lovely setting, fantastic food and short classes if you want to attend but no pressure. Been going for years and am already booking next year
Brilliant weekend as always! Excellent food and great company!
We had a great weekend .with good company.
Accommodation was good and very clean.
Food was great and plenty of it
It was my first workshop on Scrapbooking and I absolutely loved it! Linda is superb as an organiser, always helpful and efficient. I had lots of opportunities to do my own thing, learn new techniques and get really good tips. The people in my group were fantastic - generous with advice and tips, their crafting stuff and so very friendly and warm. It was a welcoming, supportive and most of all, fun environment.
I would absolutely love to go back - I've already signed up for the next two workshops! My only advice would be - be quick to apply! Places get filled fast, which is no surprise, given how wonderful and experience it is.
Another super weekend. This is the 4th year my best friend and I have gone. Excellent value for money. I have met some lovely people over the years and look forward to seeing some of them again in June. Highly recommended x
3rd weekend away. A great time as usual. Loved the breakout sessions and the friendly atmosphere with likeminded people. Plenty of advice and stock available and it went all too quickly. Had to book for next year and only sorry I can only make one a year.
This was my 3rd year at Memories& Photos & as usual was a very relaxing & enjoyable weekend. If you want the opportunity for 2 days of uninterrupted crafting, good wholesome food prepared for you 3 times a day, unlimited tea/coffe & biscuits, a clean comfortable room & a huge craft space then this is the venue for you. Add to that a beautiful old house with attractive grounds & the chance to meet many like-minded people.
Thank you so much! A wonderful, relaxing and creative weekend! Will definitley be back!
Brilliant weekend as always, well organised, good food, lovely place to stay!
Fantastic weekend, really good to have the time and the space to craft without interruptions. Great company and great food. Lovely location
