We have just enjoyed the most incredible weekend at Glenapp Castle. Everything was faultless The Castle is stunning yet the reception rooms are all so cosy with fires lit and comfy sofas, the dining room just a nice intimate size and the bedrooms are gorgeous again with a welcoming fire. The food also puts this place way above anywhere else, it was absolutely amazing, perfect cooking at every course, delicious food served beautifully, a real treat to look forward to every evening and a lovely choice of breakfast too. When you add in the exceptional service from every member of staff we met who really cannot do enough to help I feel it is probably the best place we’ve had the pleasure to stay in the UK. Can’t wait to return!
