We had a family wedding at Rowton Castle and stayed here the night before. It is very quiet and very pleasant. It has the feel of a farm and the views are great. In the lounge there was an "honesty bar" which is unmanned. This sort of thing is very refreshing in this day and age. Breakfast was really nice...

On the face of a great place to stay .... The barns have been tastefully converted. The bedrooms are comfortable although the beds could do with being slightly softer - it was like sleeping on a sack of potatoes!!! - maybe the addition of a topper might help? - I also thought that maybe the duvet and pillows were due...

We have just returned from Rowton Barns having stayed overnight for a friend's wedding. We received a warm welcome and I was pleasantly surprised by the accommodation, which I thought to be better than the photographs on the website suggested. We decided to drive to the Castle as it was dark and quite windy - I would anticipate that the...

Many thanks for taking the time to send a review and I'm very pleased you enjoyed your stay. We used to put soap in all bathrooms but as we always try to be quite "green" we did not enjoy throwing so much away! We took the decision to have a liquid shampoo/shower gel instead. Perhaps we will keep some bars...

I'm very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your breakfast at Rowton Barns. So many people do not like black pudding that we decided not to serve it. On the other hand guests love the sweet cherry tomatoes! Beans are always available as is a plentiful supply of freshly cooked toast.

We stayed at Rowton Barns while attending a friends wedding at Rowton Castle. The Barns were very picturesque and well located for the Castle next door. The staff were very welcoming and showed us around the Barns before we checked into our room (the Long Barn, where breakfast was served, was lovely, and would be ideal for a big family...

Booked this to attend a wedding at Rowton Hall. Slightly disappointed with the room - small and basic but very clean. It's about a 10 minute walk to the venue so take some shoes suitable for walking to change into. Breakfast was nice but no real choice and not keen on tinned fruit salad. I feel the owners have a...
