First, this was my 50th birthday and I wanted to something special. We arrived at the castle and were treated by the resident puppy Einstein. Ok, maybe greeted was a stretch...he just laid there and barely acknowledged us. The staff was awesome and we got upgraded to the honeymoon suite!!! I really felt like the princess at that point! We opened our bottle of wine and poured a glass (in waterford crystal of course we had recently purchased ) and walked around the grounds. Everywhere we went the staff was super friendly. The grounds are beautiful and there are miniature horses and donkeys in a field across from the castle. I felt like the lady of the manor surveying her property. We ate at the pub that evening and made an early night of it, (birthday, honeymoon suite, big slipper tub....you get the picture. The next morning we went to breakfast and the staff gave me a birthday card!!! We left reluctantly after breakfast but not before I accidentally left my wallet in the room. 1 hour later I realized my mistake and had to backtrack to the castle. I think the castle was trying to make me stay :-) Anyway, the owner had my wallet and some change I inadvertently left as well waiting at the front desk. They had already sent and email and left a message on my home phone! I will never forget the experience or the kindness I experienced here.
