This is the 2nd time we've stayed at Walworth - and you dont go back to a place unless you really like it.
We booked a suite and stayed in 2 different rooms on both occasions. The first suite was the Bayeaux suite - spacious rooms witha gorgeous view from a lovely old, stained glass window in the living area; bedroom in the tower with the heaviest curtains on the windows and four poster bed (real character, especially when we woke to find it had been snowing overnight) and the hallway between the two rooms with a fantastic view onto the patio area. It was so cosy and perfect to stay in winter time. Our only disappointment was the bathroom which was quite basic and didnt live up to the expectations compared to the other rooms.
More recently, we stayed in room 16 (not sure if it had a name). This suite overlooked the front of the castle and was perfect for a spring weekend. Lots of natural light the sun shining through the main window onto the living area and from the sofa you could see out of the side of the castle. The bedroom didnt disappoint as once again it had a stunning bed (so high I nearly needed a ladder to get into it, but didnt care!). It had such character. Where the bathroom in the other suite was a bit disappointing, this one was out of this world! The spa bath big enough for 2 was incredible - just sublime. If I had one ask of the management to make this room spectacular it's that it could use a shower cubicle. The room certainly has the space and whilst we love baths, others may like a shower option. Just a thought.
All in all, we love this place. Its a world away from the mayhem of life and we'd be happy to try another suite next time!
