“A True Delight”
Reviewed August 29, 2008

We have just spent the most wonderful weekend as guests at Six Castlegate. We were in a wedding party that took over the whole place and staying in this most wonderful friendly and hospitable house made our stay even more enjoyable. The hosts Alan and Angela made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived, the whole house oozes elegance and charm and as we had taken every room for the wedding we were able to view each room and every one was of the highest standard. Breakfast on the morning of the wedding was made even more special as each table had been decorated with balloons and confetti on the tables! what a lovely surprise, Alan and Angela joined in the excitment of the day as we prepared to leave for the wedding and nothing was too much trouble for them (even providing much needed headache tablets the next morning). I would highly recommend Six Castlegate as you are smiling when you arrive and smiling when you leave!

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at 6 Castlegate. We had a wonderful time there. The owners, Alan and Angela are brilliant hosts, they couldn't do enough for us.

We were staying with our daughters wedding party and arrived friday pm much later than planned and very stressed. It was like walking into a haven of tranquility! Theyir relaxed manner helped us to calm down and relax, and they were most helpful and inviting.

The following morning, the day of my daughters wedding they had decorated the dining room with helium ballons and confetti, making the start to the day very, very special.

We left our rooms in a tip (20 mins late for church!), but on our return, they had tidied our rooms and made it so welcoming for our return, putting candles in my daughters room for a romantic atmosphere on her wedding night!

All of these acts were over and above what we had expected and indeed paid for. They truly did make the wedding stay something special.

Food was excellent, perfectly cooked breakfasts served in a very welcoming and relaxed manner. Our granchildren were messy (toddlers) but we never felt awkward about this.

It is a beautiful building with many original architectural features making an excellent backdrop for the 'before' wedding photos. Rooms are spotlessly clean and co-ordinated with amazing attention to detail, and quality fixtures and fittings.

We will definately go again, and will recommend it to any friends, family or aquaintances.

We will add photos in a couple of weeks time.

Impressed by previous articles we stayed at Six Castlegate for 2 nights whilst exploring the Northern Lakes.
The accommodation was first class, welcome was very friendly but not pushy, breakfasts exactly as asked for. We would recommend this guest house to anyone and would appeal to singles couples or families
