Here is what some of our satisfied customers have said:

Taylors of Harrogate – “We found Washburn Heritage Centre a great place to work – it is light and spacious which helped to keep us energised all day – not to mention the brisk walk around Fewston reservoir after lunch which is literally on the doorstep. The homemade food combined with the warm and friendly service along with the excellent facilities made our away day enjoyable and very productive in every way – we will be back!”

80th birthday party – “A thank you to you and your team for making the celebration of my 80th birthday so special.  The  Centre was so tastefully decorated giving an impressive welcome to all my friends.  The afternoon tea with the tasty sandwiches, home made scones and cream and delicious selection of home made cakes all beautifully presented was a delight.  Clive’s talk about the creation and development of the Centre was very well received, and an apt ending to the afternoon, with many vowing to return for a further exploration….”

OPAL – “Thanks Jenny, we had a lovely day yesterday and your volunteers were incredibly helpful and kind”

Leeds Beckett University – “Enjoyed a wonderful ‘away day’ at Washburn Heritage Centre.  Fantastic food, friendly welcome and great facilities. Made even more special by our lunchtime walk to the reservoir and visit to the beautiful church.  With grateful thanks.”

St Marks Church, Harrogate  – “Thank you once again for all your hard work today.  We had a lovely service in the church which was flooded with sunshine.  I do not need to tell you how much the meal was enjoyed, especially the cakes.  I hope you can all have a rest before the next catering job.  You are amazing.  Blessings….”
