This is our third stay at this castle and our second time in the Landseer Apartment. Its great staying in a real castle and feeling part of history. The apartment is well equipped with the highlight being the log fire. Its wonderful when you climb the stairs from the ground floor bedrooms and bathroom to the large living room and separate kitchen and dining area and you get the smell of wood smoke. I had the best nights sleep in ages in the big, amazingly comfortable double bed. Even my partner, who is normally a very early riser didn't get up until after 8am each morning. It did feel a bit strange on the Friday night being the only people in the castle apart from the caretaker. The Castle itself is superb with lots of quirky things to look at and explore. The gardens are lovely, as is the walk to the lakes. The staff were all really lovely, friendly and helpful. We will definitely return for another very relaxing time. There is absolutely no mobile phone signal but there is a pay phone. However, in this frantic world it was good to be able to just forget our mobiles, ipads etc and just spend time as a family.
