On a whim I was looking for somewhere to stay with my wife for a couple of nights. We were in Durham and wanted something different. We found a castle!! I phoned the reception and got a deal to stay in one of the superior rooms in the lodges (in the grounds) for two nights. Unfortunately the castle was full which reminds me to book early for the next time. All accommodation is beautifully turned out and all lodge rooms have a view on to the castle itself.
This place is fabulous and it just drips with history. We absolutely adored it and will return. There are peacocks in the grounds which are beautifully manicured, hardly a blade of grass out of shape. The Castle really has the wow factor especially on the first drive up to the front door.
There are two restaurants, the main one has fabulous food which is worth the money. Try the Basil pannacotta and the ginger ice cream, my wife nearly fell off her seat; it is that good.
The service is 5*. All of the staff put themselves out for you and do it with good cheer. The lads who run the bar area and drawing room are of special mention. I suspect they would do cartwheels if you asked them.
Obviously this place is not a B & B and you pay the price accordingly but you will get the service, the food, the history and a CASTLE for gods sake. Stay here and pretend you're the Lord and Lady of the castle.
