We came and stayed for two nights with 16 of our family and friends aged from 3 to 51. The Staff over the whole weekend were very helpful and friendly. On the Saturday night we went to the Medieval Banquet which was hosted by a really funny and informative compere, he was worth the night. The food was great and plenty and merriment was had by all our family and friends and from the next day I believe most of the other guests. On the Sunday we tried the archery and had a informative walk around the castle. The rooms were great for our purposes, we stayed in the 16 bed guardroom which was a mixture of metal and wooden bunkbeds. The metal ones were sturdy but the wooden ones were quite creaky but added to the weekend. The doors creaked and the floor boards moved, but what can you expect from a 13th century castle , if you want a quiet modern hotel , please don't come but if you want to experience an atmospheric drop into the past with fun this is the place for a family and friends.
