We stayed here years ago and went back to visit this month. The castle is under construction (mostly roof repairs were were told) so we didn't get to stay, but the owner said we could go by to see how things are progressing. This has been a favorite of ours because so much of the interior contains the old cells and the hardware from the jail. Outside it is the perfect castle (with a monkey puzzle tree as a bonus!). We have heard they plan a reopening for the fall. We enjoyed our brief stay. Mrs Butler was engaging - a true lady.
