Testimonials


Quotes Claymont is an absolutely wonderful venue for residential seminars and conferences! I've been leading teachers' workshops here for six years, and many participants have found their stay at Claymont the most memorable event of their entire summer vacation. The Claymont staff are graciousness itself, and the food is absolutely delicious. Communal dinners in the dining room and evening conversations over wine on the verandah foster a rare and precious sense of family that even led to a marriage last year! Quotes
