I wanted to stay somewhere more personable than a large hotel chain. Female solo travel makes me desiring of a more individual approach. This was just as hoped for. Lovely convivial atmosphere. Family feel, with great duty of care. Lovely walk out over the fields made it extra special. BUT the OMG moment glorious homemade mince pies in May. Highly recommend
I don’t think I stayed at the same hotel as other people reviewing this place. Cons. lukewarm ‘welcome’, non existent goodbye. Uncomfortable bed. A tiny shower that was quite hard to get in and out of. Musty smell generally and a sense that the place needs a good spring clean. Very very dated decor and furniture. Cluttered dining room. Mediocre breakfast. One garden table had a used ashtray and empty beer bottle on it for duration of the stay. I appreciate that it would be an expensive task to refurb completely but how about a lick of paint? Pros. The surrounding area is beautiful and it’s peaceful.
Lovely, quiet setting in large grounds. The room was comfortable and with an arm chair and a chaise longue it was relaxing to sit in. The breakfast was amazing and the staff were friendly and helpful. Parking was a little tight, but otherwise, excellent.
We came up from the South for a close family funeral the w/c 6th December, and the guys at the Brass Castle were absolutely brilliant. Its a huge property but only has 4 available guest rooms at one time, so it felt very intimate and the service was kind of tailored to us which was quite a unique but welcome experience. Breakfast was absolutely banging every morning. The rooms were all brilliant and nicely sized. The only downside is the on-site parking as its very difficult to turn round if its already busy and there is only really three parking spaces, with no real car parking area (it's all just round the back sort of..) However, that is a minor inconvience against a truly wonderful stay in a Lovely Property. A true home away from home.
Absolutely beautiful peaceful stay! This is a hidden gem we didn't know was on our doorstep! The staff are friendly and couldn't do enough to ensure you were happy! Food was delicious, we stayed in the Holly room which was clean and decorated to give you a 'grand' feel which was lovely! The hot tub (although on the terrace) was private, well maintained and right under the stars! Will certainly be returning..only downfall for us is that we couldn't stay longer xx Thank you for having us x
