This is one of the most unique properties I've ever visited, and not to be missed. For one, the value of what you're getting is miles ahead of any BnB; deluxe dual head steam shower, giant tub for two, massive grounds to walk, views for miles, real privacy, space.
The whole castle of course has a medieval theme which wanders from interesting to whimsical, there's nothing too offensive among the curiosities save a well placed mural in the steam shower but by that point, well, you know what your in for. The dungeon is made for lovers first, and large parties second (it does have three full bedrooms), no two ways about it. Dungeon has a private entrance not shared with the other guests. Lot of fun.
The upper floors are open and light. Both the bedrooms look fantastic, the Queen is actually much bigger than the photos infer. The King does the name justice, money well spent for top floor luxury, great balcony, impossible to disappoint.
Hosts are gracious, smart and kind people, all good.
