I booked an overnight stay for my daughters birthday and definitely didn't regret it. We were called the day before to make sure that we were ready and that we didn't have any questions. This was a nice extra touch.
On arrival we were early for check in but we were allowed access to the glamping parking area and free access to the park. At check in time we were shown our tent and all the facilities. The Knights Cottage housed the kitchen (free hot water for hot drinks) and also bathroom with shower facilities better than many hotels. Then a short walk through the cottage garden to the BBQ area and the 8 well positioned tents all equally private. The kids, and wife were well excited.
The added extra of free roam of the castle grounds, including play area for the kids after closing was brilliant.You cannot really contain the excitement of 2 young children who have the entire Knights Play Area to themselves when everyone else goes home.
There was only one negative, and that was the breakfast. At £5 per person for a breakfast "hamper" we were expecting better than 2 croissants and a mug of tea each. We opted for this x 4 and to be honest the cost to provide (especially as hot water facilities were free) would have been the same as one breakfast.
I would definitely go back, and I think my children, and wife will stop talking to me if I refuse.
