My mum and I stayed at the Stable Courtyard on a Sunday through to Monday in September and were delighted.
Prior to arrival the accommodation team ensured we had all the information we needed and organised us tickets for the castle. Entry to the grounds, maze and aviary are free for guests.
The bedroom was old fashioned with lovely twin beds that were incredibly comfortable and the views across the herb gardens and lake was breathtaking. It was so quiet we had to make sure we had alarm to wake up on time for breakfast the next day! The free WiFi was also a help locating a restaurant for Sunday night as once the grounds close to visitors you need to go off site to eat. This wasn't a problem there was a lot of choice locally and the accommodation team have a list of recommended places.
Breakfast offered a selection of fruit and cereals followed by a full English (or your adaptation of it) & toast. We were even allowed to leave our car in the private car park whilst we explored on Monday.
The finishing touch was being able to explore the grounds before the general public, we got some amazing pictures and some wonderful memories.More
