Meet The Team

Everyone on the BHBC team has the same strong ethos when it comes to our business. We feel a friendly, relaxed but efficient atmosphere is of utmost importance and we are here to help achieve this.

We are backed up by the total commitment of the Phipps Family and this shows through with the atmosphere here and the confidence that we know that we will always get an instant response to our queries

and requests.

Libby Parratt

Business Centre Manager

Libby oversees and manages the Business Centre. Undertaking practically any task whilst spreading optimism and cheer is what she does best, maybe not quite so enthusiastically before the morning coffee though!

Hester Dunkley

Conference & Events Manager

Hester organises all our meetings, conferences and events. She has an amazing attention to detail which ensures a very high standard in everything she does. She is super efficient at H&S and despite this, still has a very good sense of humour!

Chris Parratt

Accounts & Reception

Chris is at the forefront of the business, managing reception and keeping a tight control of accounts.  She is a mastermind with figures and at making sure Libby & Hester

don't overspend.

Dominika Sicinska

Head of Housekeeping

Lee Batchelor

Head Gardener


Head of HR

Dominika heads up our housekeeping team ensuring everywhere is spotless. Dom also makes the most delicious brownies, needless to say definitely tried and tested on our part!

aka "Ranger One" who is responsible for our beautiful gardens and grounds. Not only is he the nicest person you will ever meet, he is also the fount of all knowledge when it comes to natural history.

Phil the Pheasant


Loki is always available with an open ear for any colleague, she is the soul of discretion.

Her talents include greeting clients and scanning the grounds from her window ensuring Security is

still patrolling.

Phil is our hand reared pheasant who keeps a very keen eye on proceedings. If it's raining he can occasionally be seen sheltering in The House, but usually he’s roaming freely on the Estate hiding from HR!
