The word Guesthouse does not do this marvellous property justice. The proprietors Peter & Maureen Holmes have clearly done a first class renovation job on this property, which in my opinion can stand shoulder to shoulder with any exclusive country house hotel. Unlike a hotel your stay is not regimented in any way and you are made to feel at home in the luxurious surroundings. The property benefits from seclusion and magnificent views and I can see why the BBC Spingwatch presenters used it as their base while they filmed in the area. Great comments have been left by them in the guest book. In an otherwise hectic business schedule it was a real pleasure to stay at the Castle. Both Peter & Maureen are super hosts and Maureen's culinary delights are a must when staying. I will certainly consider returning with a group of friends and making a long weekend of it.
