Other things to note
BEDDING / TOWELS / SOAP
We provide full set of bed linen for 8 double beds. Each bed has 2 pillows, 2 pillow slips, a quilt, a sheet, a quilt cover and 2 big bath towels. Each toilet has a hand towel. Each shower has a toweling bath mat. We also supply hand soap for all the sinks and basins. Sorry we cannot provide extra linen or towels for any portable /
spare beds.

We don't supply wash cloths or tea towels in the kitchen. The reason being that it encourages people to hand wash rather than use the dishwasher. There are different 'standards' of hand washing, so we prefer guests to use the dishwasher (we supply dishwasher tablets) because a dishwasher has only one standard - top standard, eg everything is squeaky clean.

The Castle is effectively a gate house. It is a folly and was not built as a fortification. As such it is not a large dwelling, proportions are small and homely. Turrets on the whole are unusable and are for decoration.

The bedrooms are particularly small as they were not originally built as bedrooms encompassing showers and sinks. To save room, showers and sinks are open plan to the bedrooms, some squeezed into corners and cleverly hidden by paneling. Some beds have access only from one side. Rapunzel's Tower bedroom is some distance from the WC.

The chairs in the Dining Hall are very heavy, they are very old solid rosewood. Lighter chairs can be taken from the bedrooms if required but must be put back.

The Clock house which is the separate building has a modern interior despite it's ye-olde exterior, it in no way reflects the character or quality of the Castle. It is clean, comfortable and functional and is purely used as overflow accommodation where necessary. Please don't be disappointed with this building, it is meant for just getting your head down, the actual castle is where all the fun and activity is.

The Castle is situated alongside a busy main road. It is mostly hidden behind tall trees, hedging, high banking and high fencing to reduce noise. It is almost impossible to see the Castle from the road making it difficult to find.

We say all this at detriment to putting you off but we do not want guests to believe they will be entering a vast, fairy tale castle with soaring turrets, battlements and draw bridges. The Castle is a wonderful place and full of character.

We (Adrian & Claire) strongly believe in the tradition of a group of family or friends getting together in a beautiful property for a few days. Whether it be for a birthday, anniversary, reunion or simply a chance to catch up and re-bond. We regularly entertain our own big, spreadout family and have hosted hundreds of family reunions, special birthdays, responsible hen / stags parties, group get together's and all sorts of celebrations. The house is an amazing place, everyone loves the space and peace of the house and grounds and care for it as we do. We like people to party and have a good time but not too hard, make noise of course, but do respect the place as we do. We respect people's privacy and know most people want to just turn up and enjoy the place with friends or family. That's why we have installed entry key pads, just turn up when you want and use your special code to come and go as you please. No fussing with keys! You've picked a great location, it's so handy to get to Bath. Stonehenge, Longleat and the gorgeous Bradford on Avon. The West Country is just beautiful and you are in the best part of it. Glorious walks, fun festivals, lovely pubs and restaurants There's plenty of interesting local market towns, full of history. We love the area and we are sure that your friends and family will too. Please, enjoy the fun West Country way of life ! Seeing grand old beautiful buildings being brought back to life and hearing of people enjoying these yesteryear treasures is our passion and we hope that you will leave the house with fond memories and a little twinkle. Love Adrian & Claire xxx
