An absolute gem, it was a privilege to enter such a unique building and wander around soaking up the atmosphere and history, Lots of people may not be able to appreciate what Castle Lodge offers, its not your typical tourist attraction.... it is special.

Its a fabulous property and how privileged to have been able to look around. It is certainly worth the £3 entrance fee (and more). Thank you to the owner for sharing your house to the public.
