We only spent one night here but would have liked to have stayed longer if we could. The rooms are lovely and big, comfortable with a bath as well as separate shower in the bathroom. The radiators really belt out heat so we had them turned really low. And of course the surrounding grounds are wonderful. It was so good to open the curtains in the morning to a view of the grounds.
The breakfast was nice. The only negative was that it was a bit cold in the The Fairfax and so the coffee went cold quickly. I would advise asking them to heat the milk.
The only real drawback is that there is no restaurant in the evening. They do supply a list of eating places near by but it's not quite so convenient if you don't have a car, like us. Staff kindly looked after our luggage on the day we checked out so we could enjoy the estate unencumbered.
Checking out time is 10am, which we think is a bit early especially as the castle didn't open until 10.30. This was fine when we were there because it happened to be one of the warmest days we've had so far this year. If it had been raining it could have been a bit miserable.
We would definitely stay here again. It's a great B&B in a beautiful and tranquil place.
