One of the most romantic places I've even had the pleasure of staying in. I felt I'd gone back in time. The whole tour and history of the castle was amazing. Staying in the Eisenhower suite full of history and fantastic views. Having champagne afternoon cream tea in the round room was superb as was our experience in the dining... More

There are many different places to explore once you are inside. The castle itself is great but the grounds are extensive from the swan pond to the walled garden to the adventure park for the children and you can get direct access to the beach . There are picnic benches and a cafe truly something for everyone

We visited Culzean Castle whilst staying at the nearby Haven site. As England's National Trust members we were delighted to find we could enter for free! The castle was fantastic, and had a trail for the kids- finding mini lego characters (it was quite difficult, lol). We had a meal in the restaurant and explored the grounds, stopping to see... More

Impressive views and well preserved castle. Tour is not available in Winter, so if you want to see castle interior visit before Nov 1st. Yet grounds are open all year round, with lots of wildlife to enjoy and impeccably kept.

I live next to Culzean Castle and Country Park so I am a frequent visitor. It is the most marvellous place to go walking at any time of the year. We find new paths to explore all the time. The autumn colours this year were totally amazing

My wife and I decided to splurge on a one night stay at Culzean while visiting the U.K. It was probably the highlight of our trip. The service was impeccable and being able to walk the grounds while the castle is closed to the public was a surreal experience. Breakfast was delicious and the sitting room where we took our...

HOWEVER my daughter lost her phone (I phone 5), after countless time looking we told the... More

Visited on a day which wasnt the best weather, however that didnt dampen our experience. Fantastic views from the castle of the Ayrshire coast, as well as the beautiful gardens. Inside the castle, there were plenty of staff to answer any questions we may have, and there was no problem taking pictures inside !! Outside in the grounds, again plenty... More

We spent 5 days staying at Ardlochan Lodge in the grounds of the castle. Fantastic little cottage, just a couple of hundred yards to the beach. From the beach you can see Ailsa Craig, Arran and we saw seals on the rocks close to shore. We were unable to visit the castle itself as low season but the grounds around... More
