Brillant was the word to describe this. Had afternoon tea in castle with my mother-in-law and sisters-in -law. Took a walk around castle grounds and then had a lovely afternoon tea, before taking ferry back. totally relaxed and enjoyable. Spend as much time as you want there. No rush....

We only played the golf course, and snacked in the clubhouse... But what an experience! Fallow deer roam the course, unobtrusive, but unafraid; views at some of the holes over the surrounding river are awesome (it really is an island, only accessible via three minute car ferry ride!); course is challenging, fast greens, but fair, and an easy walk.
Clubhouse and pro shop very friendly, relaxed, no pretensions at all.
We will come back here - this time to stay a few days. Magical.

Played the course a good few times at this stage, and it's in the best shape I have seen it in a long time,very friendly in the clubhouse,great selection of food in the bar.the course is a good challenge to golfers of all abilities and the ferry over does give it an extra little bit of luxury, the only letdown and unfortunately it's a big one is the locker room and shower facilities please upgrade these and this place can go up another few notchs.
