to make last weeks half term more memorable and holiday-like, I went in search of somewhere fairly nearby where we could stay for a night. It had to be close and reasonably priced - I never thought we would find a castle, but look!
slightly scary twins at castle, actually Lucie and her little cousin playmate.
the stairs to our bedroom in the tower, where they locked us up at night (really!). they spiralled steeply round the corner there. The bedroom had bunks and single beds in typical YHA style, but deep deep walls and inset windows.
stocks in the castle grounds, and there was also a jail, which the people who checked in before us had to sleep in. a great adventure that we will all remember for a long time.
