here's just a few of the comments we've received...


"Nicola / Dave / Rosanna

Just wanted to email you all to thank you for contributing to a fantastic weekend. The place was amazing, but we knew it would be. What was particularly great was the service we got to go with it.

Nicola – thanks for your help. The flowers were a great hit!! Please thank Terry and Michael for me also.

Rosanna – thanks very much. You made everybody feel relaxed, which I didn’t think was going to be easy. Thank Paris and Gabby again for me please.

Dave – it was exactly what we were after. The leftovers tasted just as good fried up last night!! Again, thank Craig and Kim.

Good service seems to be getting scarcer. To get that across the board, and to only have to ask once was a rare pleasure."

"Thank you so much for welcoming us, and letting us stay in your beautiful home. It made our holiday amazing & unique, better than we ever dreamed it could be. The whole grounds from the second you pass through the gates are immaculate and a credit to your staff and gardeners. Nicola, you have been amazing and made us feel so at home. A massive thank you to everyone that helped out and I hope we can share some beautiful photographs with you soon. Thank you again for all you've done "

"When we arrived at the gates we began to realise that Carr Hall Castle was a Special place, quickly confirmed as we began the drive through the deer park to the Castle itself. Although the website photos set the scene the reality was always going to be so much better - photos cannot do justice to the wonderful setting nor can they capture the 'homely' atmosphere of the Castle itself. On behalf of all those present I would like to thank you all for providing us with the opportunity to share the undoubted delights of the Castle and to thoroughly enjoy our stay. Terry and Michael - you have an extraordinary home in a magical setting and to allow people to share it for a time says a lot about your character - I am deeply envious!!"

"What can I say! From the moment of our arrival to our departure, we were pampered and treated royally in the elegant Carr Hall Castle. Truly magnificent establishment and thoroughly deserves its reputation. It is quite possible to spend your entire break there without leaving the grounds. Super place and all round amazing experience!"

"I wanted to let you know how very much my family and I enjoyed our weekend at Shire Castle. We were thrilled with the castle, it was so comfortable and we felt very much at home there. It is in a delightful position too, we loved it and felt quite sad to leave the place. We enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tup, it was all lovely!
Also, Dave Swadde came over on Saturday evening and cooked a delicious meal for us all. We were very impressed with his services"

"We stayed at Carr Castle for three days and two nights. I can honestly say Nicola and the staff were amazing and hospitable. The location is outstanding, the rooms perfect and the setting beautiful. You won't find a better place to celebrate an occasion than this, To top it off the meals that were organised were genuinly delicious. I would recommend this to any group looking to find a location that is unique and surprising. We are still talking about it today!"
