The castle started life as a Victorian gentleman's folly built in 1841. It is our home with our children Oliver & Emily, (plus Maisie the Cocker Spaniel, chickens, goats and pigs galore). We run it as a quirky, quietly groovy sort of place to stay - not a hotel, not a B&B but something entirely different. We have a separate website for the castle which is easily found.

We began hosting back in 1998 as a way to pay for the renovation of this beautiful building.

It's a real family home which welcomes guests to stay for a night or two, have supper or dinner, party or even get married. A seriously relaxed place - no false formality, but a place where you can kick off your shoes by the front door without causing a scandal!

It is an old building with small doorways and corridors but all ground floor guest areas are disabled friendly and there are two ground floor bedrooms - one with full wheelchair access.

Our rates quoted on this site are per room per night for bed & breakfast for two people and are a starting point. We also have a listing for hiring the whole castle. All our rooms are very different and individually priced so you may find the rate changes if you request specific rooms or dates. Extra beds, dinner, wine, drinks etc are all charged in addition.
