Kate S said…“I have now run two retreats at Lower Marsh Farm, and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. As the facilitator, Olivia makes it all SO easy; arranging everything from catering to studio configuration. Her communication is prompt and helpful, and the farm is always immaculate. As for my guests, they leave having fallen in love with Lower Marsh Farm. This is because it feels like home as soon as you arrive; the rooms are clean and cosy, the food is out of this world, the scenery is peaceful and quiet, and Olivia and her team as so warm and helpful. We are always sad to leave, but drive away feeling relaxed, recharged and extremely full! I’m not sure any other venue could compete!” January 2023

Maria P said…”I hired Lower Marsh Farm as a venue for a retreat and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. From the moment I arrived the staff were friendly, the rooms impeccable and everything had been thought of. Olivia, Valerie & Chris were friendly, welcoming & unobtrusive. Then there was the food. It was absolutely incredible. I’d go back again for the food alone. And that Cherry Bakewell Cheesecake – we agreed was the highlight of the whole retreat. Definitely recommend this place and it deserves all the awards it gets! ” March 2020
