The experience of visiting the castle starts as you pass through the gate house lodge and drive up through the forest before entering the castle ward via an open carriage way protected by a portcullis.
The castle has centuries of tradition within its walls and the ageless charm you enjoy is due to the vision held by the Naylor family when they took back ownership in 2006.
Not only is the castle open to the public for general viewing, the castle’s hotel offers 48 stunning bedrooms, all individually designed and beautifully appointed, blending luxury and contemporary decor. From executive rooms that are spacious relaxation areas and fairy-tale four-poster rooms to suites for a romantic break and family rooms that comfortably accommodate parents with their little ones, all the guestrooms boast original features designed with complete luxury in mind.
The cost of staying in the castle varies from £100 up to £300 for a suite.
