Mardon Hall gallery

I loved my time in Mardon Hall, it really is a hidden gem and has a real sense of community. Being one of the smaller accommodations I found you get to know everyone so well!

I also loved being catered in my first year as it was so social. Getting to go to breakfast and dinner with your friends also meant you could focus on  getting to know people and not so much on budgeting your food shop for one year!
