What a great find this turned out to be, only booked 48 hours before. Very impressive building from the outside, staff were great nothing was to much trouble, a most enjoyable stay. Usually there is some aspect of a stay that disappoints or "it was nice but" not the case with Rowton Castle. Looking forward to going back some time.
