We have just spent a week at Brunston Castle and we enjoyed it immensely. On arrival the reception staff were very welcoming and friendly and our accommodation was excellent. Although there were only two of us we had a three bedroomed lodge. The lodge was very well furnished, there was a double bedroom and two twin rooms, an open plan lounge/diner/kitchen a bathroom with shower and also a separate toilet. The site is very hilly and may not be suitable for anyone with limited mobility. In the Leisure Centre there is a swimming pool and baby pool, a gym and sauna. Outside there is a putting green and a childrens playground. Although there is no restaurant on the site there is a restaurant on the adjacent golf course. The meals are very reasonable price and, although not adventurous, are well cooked. On the evening we went, however, our reservation was for 7.30pm and when we got there two of the dishes were already off and by the time a party of 6 arrived at 8.30pm there was very little to choose from. We also had to wait about 20 minutes for our starter and a further 45 mins for our main course. Needless to say we didn't stay for dessert. There are a number od restaurants within about 12 miles of the resort and, although we self catered most of the week, we did eat at the Minishant Inn about 11miles away and we enjoyed that meal immensely. There is a well stocked supermarket in the village just outside the resort and also a local shop which also is well stocked. On two evenings a week a mobile fish and chip van comes to the site and we took advantage of this , the fish and chips were very nice. On two mornings a week a local guide, Ron, does guided walks, he is very knowledgeable and the walks last for between 2 and 3 hours, some of them are very hilly so again not suitable for anyone with limited mobility. We would certainly recommend this resort.
