I've never stayed in a castle and it looked so impressive, and the views and the grounds were amazing! Child, adult and dog friendly! Inside has the old features to give you that Gothic feel, however shower, kitchen, tv etc was all modern! So you got the best of both worlds! It was a 10 min walk to the town and beach, which was handy as everything was on your doorstep. Thank you for a lovely stay, and were definitely be back! Jade :)
