The palace is lovely. The gardens are exquisite. It was very peaceful and inviting. The breakfast was amazing each day. I was there alone and felt quiet comfortable. The atmosphere is just what I needed. I would love to bring family back some day.

My daughter and her husband stayed the first night of their honeymoon at Thornewood following their sunken garden wedding and lakeside / castle reception, a stunning venue. Planning and event staff are wonderful to work with - exceptional experience.
