Beautiful day in a stunning location. Cannot fault the staff at all, they were so attentive and made sure everyone was very happy at all times. Food was gorgeous and served promptly. Would love to see the building and grounds in summer.

We went round the castle todayandf we were dissappointed with the number of rooms available to see and the constant mention of the boothbys and of the guides personal experiences with the owner. I dont think we paid for that knowledge. We shant be coming back. However the gardens were really nice.
