Colehayes Park Team


Rebecca bought Colehayes with her late husband Bill in 1999. Together they transformed the house and grounds from a dilapidated manor house into a thriving estate. Her passion for Colehayes shines through in every phone call to a bride to every viewing with a teacher looking to booking their next school trip. She has dedicated the last 20 years to making the business what it is today. From taking enquiries on the phone, pitching in with the washing up or running the bar for a university group, Rebecca touches every part of the Colehayes experience. She is the queen of many hats and ensures that the spirit of Colehayes as a venue of freedom and flexibility is kept well and truly alive.


Ellice is Rebecca’s right-hand woman. She came to the business in 2011 but has been part of the family for 20 years as one of Rebecca’s daughter’s childhood friends. Although Ellice has memories of making dens in the grounds of Colehayes as a young child, she now coordinates our weddings, school groups and holiday makers. She can be found manning the office, giving guided tours of the property and helping answer your questions, as your plans begin to take shape. For Ellice, there’s no question too small or request too big.
