24:/03/20: Following the Prime Minister's statement on 23/03/20 the Castle is now closed other than for security, key management personnel and live-in maintenance staff. So there is 'generally' no one to receive incoming calls. The majority of reception, front of house, wedding planning staff are now furloughed and required to stay at home. Please can everyone email us rather than phone us. Or use the Chat Service on the website. Wedding Planners working still from home can still take incoming emails and answer queries on our chat service but cannot take phone calls.
28/07/2020 Update: The Castle remains closed for weddings and B&B as the regulations do not currently allow for a B&B service nor for a full wedding. We anticipate it could be some time before ordinary B&B and full wedding events can legally be offered. Our primary business has always been weekend weddings and events which have 'subsidised' the quieter midweek periods, enabling us to offer discounted Dog Friendly midweek B&B breaks. Once events can resume, we anticipate there won't be enough B&B demand to justify fully re-opening until May 2021. Accordingly we now plan to remain closed for 'general' B&B, other than for guests of events and weddings, and aim to re-open fully in summer 2021.
Once our main weddings business can resume, post-COVID 'social distancing', we will need to phase our re-opening in an economically viable manner. We remain closed other than for viewings, weddings and pre-booked private events. We will provide B&B for event guests only. Resuming our Dog Friendly midweek B&B will be the final part of a carefully phased re-opening - probably in May 2021 when there are enough 'general' (non-event) B&B guests wishing to stay, to allow us economically to re-open fully.

2020 Availability -
We are currently closed until May 2021
due to coronavirus restrictions.
B&B will only be offered to Guests of pre-booked events once 'events' can resume.
As we come slowly out of Coronavirus Lockdown we do not know when we will be able to re-open. We may at some point be legally able to open for limited B&B but the castle cannot ecnomically support B&B for very low guest numbers, so we will for a few months only open for events. We do not anticipate opening for non-event related B&B until summer 2021. We may come up with a self-catering option as an alternative.
When re-open you can look at the calendar below and arrange your visit around weddings. Blue weddings are exclusive use so you cannot stay on a blue date. All other weddings are not exclusively using the bedrooms, so there may be some availability on pink and green dates provided you do not mind staying when there is a wedding on. All unshaded dates have no events on and so there is normally plenty of B&B availability but until things change, we'll remain closed for B&B probably till May 2021.
In the top chart above each month's room planner, the Dark Blue and Light Blue shaded dates are weddings with Exclusive Use of all En-suites - B&B fully reserved for wedding guests.
Other colours show weddings using less accommodation, so there may be availablity for non-wedding guests. Unshaded dates have no event on and are available. Grey dates also have B&B availability.
As we are currently only offering B&B as part of an event, if you are enquiring as a non-event guest, we will be in touch when we have availability. Please only complete the enquiry form if you are happy to be included in our accommodation update emails and any B&B promotions/ discount deals we may offer you for key seasonal dates such as Christmas, New Year's Eve, Valentines etc.
