Description
The castle has eleven bedrooms, all of an equal standard but each with a very different character. Some have four poster beds, others four poster baths. There are turrets for wardrobes, stained glass windows and big views. All our bedrooms are decorated with bold colours and furnished with antiques. There's certainly no chintz but you won't find safe modern interiors with lots of beige, cream and black here either...

You may find such unusual additions to your room as a piano in the bathroom, a church pew next to the loo, an African tribal hanging or Indonesian blowpipe above your bed.




But while your surroundings may be quirky (this is, after all, a Victorian gentleman’s country folly), be assured of the finest Egyptian cotton bed linens on kingsize or bigger beds (bar one antique four poster), huge fluffy bath towels, eco-friendly bathrobes, decent showers, big baths, most big enough for two, locally handmade organic toiletries, homemade biscuits, fresh ground coffee & fresh milk and the latest TV technology in every room.

There’s a decanter of sherry to help you unwind and a teddy bear on each bed to keep you company.


        


Downstairs, roaring fires in winter may entice you not to venture out, but if you do there are 15 acres of landscaped grounds to explore and Holly, our willing Labrador to show you the way. We have great walking straight from the front door.
