    Amazing to be staying in a castle. The lounge and public areas are so quaint. Lovely helpful staff and the restaurant is delicious and not too pricey. Plenty of parking too. Take a walk around the gardens it's great.

    I am sorry but you will need to direct your question direct to the hotel. All I can say is it is a lovely setting and if chosen for your wedding then I don't think you would be disappointed.
