An overnight stay that had been organised as a birthday treat and it was. Really friendly and helpful staff (I can get used to looked after). Delightful room with simply stunning views of the hills. We both slept well having been hill walking during the day. A long soak in the large bath may have helped. All we needed was available and had our budget stretched a little further we might have sampled the restaurant as the menu was so inviting. That said it was a wee bit pricey so we decided to eat out (The Myddelton in St Peters Square). We chose the continental style breakfast which was buffet style. No problems there at all with a selection that will suit most tastes.
The castle and grounds are amazing. Even with an overnight stay my partner has so many photographs we might have been away for a week! We took a gentle stroll in the slightly overcast morning and were rewarded with a display by two of the peacocks that roam the grounds. I haven't convinced my partners that it was all in the price!
We will be back, such a brilliant experience has to be sampled more than once.
Two disappointments, firstly was the lack of sunshine to lighten the sandstone of the castle buildings: there again, we can't have everything! Secondly, my partner noted that the Prince of Wales has stayed at the castle - she couldn't find any photo's of him...
