It's a long drive from London, but we had heard rumors of a family connection for the Jenison clan. We are descendants of the Jenisons from the USA and were astonished to find a detailed history of the ownership of the castle displayed in the lobby. We travelled the few miles to Heighington's churchyard to seek the burial sites of...

Have just had a lovely four day stay at Walworth Castle. A beautiful building in spectacular rural surroundings. Welcoming and friendly staff gave great service. Excellent food and well stocked bar. The communal areas were warm and inviting. As a minor point, we stayed in the West Wing, the layout of the unheated bathroom could be improved before our next...

However, on a cold winter weekend, it was hard to get the room warm and it was rather dark, in fact it was almost impossible to read. Dinners and breakfasts in the...
