Guest Testimonials and Feedback
  • We had a wonderful stay at RAVENSPRINGS whilst working in Leeds over the christmas/new year period. It was a real treat to come home every night after work. It really had the wow factor whilst being very cosy, comfortable and fully equipped with everything we could need. we were made to feel very welcome by Josy and Caroline. It was so lovely to gather round the fireplace with a glass of champagne and see in the new year! Would fully recommend to any large groups wanting a luxurious version of a home away from home. A truly impressive house.
