This is a fantastic property. Magnificent architecture, and well maintained. Fascinating grounds, including the gardens where food is grown. Visited on a cruise ship tour. Would love to have stayed here (think pretty pricey).
Tip: if you are on tour, try to get Nick as your guide. He is the overall farm manager and very informative.
If the scones, cakes, and cookies we had with tea were any indication, the food at Balfour Castle should be exceptional.
