“We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay in Hornby Castle flat last month. We received a warm welcome from Caroline and made our way up the stairs to begin our little holiday. Everything we needed was there, plus some surprise welcome gifts of wine, fruit and flowers! Such a spacious flat just for the two of us, and it was so peaceful, just what we needed for a couple of days. Breakfast items were provided, including warm freshly baked bread on the first morning, and the fan oven with electric hob was ideal for cooking our meal that first evening…”Stayed March 2022
An absolute gem! A wonderfully unique place to stay in a beautiful location. Caroline was fab- friendly, attentive, and left us a fresh loaf of home made bread in the morning. The castle itself and the surrounding grounds are stunning. Unbelievably good value. Go on, book it!Atayed July 2021
