"Bodweni Hall was the venue for my 60th birthday celebration and what a venue it turned out to be! I can honestly say that everything was superb. The photos on the website cannot possibly do this place justice. We were lucky enough to have great weather, but even if the weather was not so good the cottage had many options for your entertainment, including a cinema, board games, books and a games room. I would definitely recommend Bodweni Hall for any large family gathering, you will not regret it." - Robert
