    Wonderful situation

    The wonderful situation with the castle,garden,adventure playground and access to the castle and shop at weekends made our stay enjoyable.The tearoom was excellent and warm ( as was our cottage ) and the staff were so informative and friendly.Your attitude and provision for young children couldn't be faulted. Then we had so many walks around us and that included one to see Yarpole Church, Belltower and community shop and Tearoom ! A great holiday!
