The village has much to offer with Mary Ann’s Bar & Restaurant just 2min walk from The Castle, serving award winning food all day throughout the year.

“The Castle is an authentic, aged like wine, period lodging with a warm embrace of the water inlet at your fingertips. Sharon was an excellent genuine hostess, and their dog sentry was dutiful with his friendliness as well. The elegant dining room with delicious freshly prepared meals with tall ceilings and fine furnishings makes you feel like royalty for the day.”
