My partner and I have just spent the weekend at the sumptous Bishops Court Estate Boutique Hotel in Bathurst.
We heard about Bishops Court from friends of ours who have not stopped raving about their experience since their visit at Easter, we just had to try this wonderful experience for ourselves, so I went onto the website and booked a surprise weekend for my beautiful partner and I.
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home with our hosts Christine and David welcoming us like long lost friends or relatives, which was a pleasant surprise from our usual experience with accommodation providers. Nothing was a bother for Christine or David during our stay with the level of service exceptional right down to the smallest detail.
I also booked a surprise dinner for two in the wonderful 100 year old chapel, what a stunning location to dine, my partner was amazed when the chapel doors were opened and we were seated at a beautiful long table dining under the candle light of over 100 candles in the chapel, it was like a dream dining location and the food and local wines were world class, Christine prepared our 4 course meal, starting with canapes in the beautiful lounge in front of the open fire (yet another touch of charm and elegance at Bishops Court) followed by 3 fantastic courses in the magnificent Chapel, this experience is a must for any body staying at Bishops Court.
The property is magnificantly appointed with every room an experience to behold, we were lucky enough to have opne of the magnificant rooms upstairs which opened out onto the upper terrace with a gorgeous outdoor lounge area overlooking the beautiful gardens and the valley of Bathurst, this space was so relaxing and tranquill for us to just enjoy life as we relaxed with a local cool climate wine.
We will definitely be back to stay at Bishops Court and we will organise to bring some of our friends so we can book the entire property and share this splendid wonder with others.
