Here's a couple of testimonials from people who have used Flaxmill for business purposes.

"50 people enjoyed an amazing weekend at Flaxmill for a Business Retreat/Conference. Each house is so welcoming, with beautiful decor, lovely outlook, set amongst manicured grounds. The housed have 3 double rooms (comfortable beds!) and 2 bathrooms, gourmet kitchen, gas fireplaces and extensive decks. The Conference area is also tastefully furnished and well equipped for purpose. It was warm and confortable. The 'camp' kitchen is well equipped, and we were well able to satisfy the needs of our 50 guests, nice crockery, glassware etc. The host/managers were most helpful and we had an amazing time. This is the second year we have held our event there and would recommend it as an outstanding location." - Coralie (May 2018)

"What a beautiful spot for our team planning retreat. We stayed in three of your houses, and felt instantly 'at home'. The picturesque surroundings were just perfect for allowing us all to slow down, and start thinking. Such gracious and thoughtful hospitality, too - everyone wanting to go the extra mile to make sure our stay was perfect - and it was!" - Fiona

"Stunning place, and locale, beautiful accomodation for 34 friends, with spaces for small lounge gatherings in the houses and in the gracious central lounge around the fireplace and in the conference and dining spaces. Catered on-site. We booked exclusive use of the whole site Friday-Sunday." - Oscar
