Visited Compton Castle for the first time today as it was thoroughly recommended by our son. Not disappointed, fairytale building with the most beautiful restoration work carried out over the last fifty years. Only a few rooms but if you really take your time to look and listen then there is much to be learnt and enjoyed. However, it could really do with its own tearooms which would be a real money spinner. We visited the Castle Barton Restaurant opposite and were very disappointed. Very rundown albeit, beautiful house in fabulous setting. The inside is a real blast from the past and not in a good way. Reminded me of boarding houses in the early sixties and the staff appeared to wish to be anywhere but there. Food very mediocre. They really do need a turnaround from Alex Polizzi, the Hotel Inspector from tv. Next time I go I'll be taking a picnic.
