I stayed at the Castle inn last march (2012) when my school group were doing their gold duke of edinburgh. I have this time persuaded my husband to join me on the trip this weekend and am very excited to be returning to the place. - I am hoping the weather does not ruin the boys practice expedition because I am looking forward to my stay in the pub!
The food was lovely and the company very friendly especially as I was a young woman travelling alone! Breakfast was huge and a challenge to walk off and the rooms and shower were brilliant after a hard day on the hills.
Would highly recommend this place and have gain and again!!
