Josephine, Switzerland

" I would like to thank you for making my stay at Westhope so very pleasant.   Everything about my stay was memorable and I think that Westhope is a stress free haven for all crafters.  My room was so comfortable and spacious and I loved looking at the craftwork displayed there and everywhere I looked around the college.   Walking in the gardens and woodland was a great pleasure and also looking at the kitchen garden where so much of our lovely food came from."
