This place is fantastic!! My husband and I went for their beer tasting weekend. We looked forward to just getting away for awhile and it ended up being better than we could have imagined! We didn't want to leave.
We stayed in the Cinderella coach house which was great. Very clean. The bed was comfy and the fireplace was great after walking from the castle.
The beer tasting was great and we got to taste more beers than we expected with not only tastings at dinner both nights, but also at lunch on Saturday. The dinners were delicious! Cheese and (amazing) meatballs as an app, salad, and a great main course along with dessert each night. Lunch from the pub was also great, but not many choices so be prepared. I highly suggest having dinner in the great hall. Breakfast was also great. The cinnamon rolls were the best ever.
The innkeeper, Steve, was very helpful in teaching us some board games and playing along. Our first night, we made some great friends and played many board games throughout the weekend. Karington also joined us for a few. He was very attentive and often went above and beyond to make our stay even better.
I do recommend that if you travel there in winter, drive a 4 wheel drive vehicle or be prepared to park and be shuttled up to the castle (karington also was great at this). There is also no wifi and super rare cell service. We loved this and welcomed the disconnect.
