Covid Update: We continue to have light restrictions at the Castle. Booking Dinner and Breakfast in advance is strongly advised. All staff continue to wear masks and rooms are serviced upon request to reduce transmission potential. During busy periods, and due to the extra time taken to ensure your room is spotlessly clean during the pandemic, there may be slight delays during check-in.
