Rayne and Chris provide an amazing tea tray which ensures... More

Rayne is like an Auntie who we havent visited for a while. Immediately upon arrival we were offered tea and a slice of cake. The bedrooms are all individuallly styled with Raynes... More

My daughter booked a night at Ash Cottage for my birthday. We visited the castle then checked in to a lovely welcome as if we were old friends - just what you need after a bit of a journey and some castley pavement-bashing. We felt quite comfortable leaving our daughters in a separate room just across the corridor which meant... More

The cottage, not too long ago still being part of the Castle Estate, has been lovingly restored and exudes a charming fairy tale feel, which pleasantly complements the... More
