This has been the most perfect weekend. We drove up from Shrewsbury in beautiful, sunny weather, me not knowing what was in store. Opening the library door to find my sisters, brothers in law, best friends from Stoke and best friends from the USA was the most amazing experience. We could not have chosen a more beautiful setting for our wedding or more perfect company. Fay, Graham and the staff were wonderful, attending to every need with grace and charm. Our company have stayed in hotels all over the world and all agree that this is a world class “hotel” - not really a hotel but a true ‘homely’ feel. We have felt so welcomed and special – thank you so very much – we will surely be back.

This has been the most magical weekend of our lives. Not only for myself and Mick but for all our friends and families. Glenapp is a fabulous place but it would’t be the same without all of your staff.
A and M P Staffordshire, 9 April 2004

Thank you so much for making us feel welcome – it was an absolute joy! Looking forward to our return in August with the rest of the ‘Clan’.

What a wonderful way to start married life. Fantastic food, and being pampered all day. I have asked my wife to take note! Thanks for everything. We will see you again.

A Tremendous week! Peaceful, restful and pampered. An ideal location to unwind away from it all. Our thanks to everyone for taking such care of us. P.S. Sofie the dog enjoyed it as well!
A & D C Leighton Buzzard, May 2004

Thank you! A truly lovely part of the world. The castle and its hosts have out-classed the rest. The service, room and food were second to none. Would love to return one day.

Thank you for being the most wonderful hosts. We have so much enjoyed coming back – it’s even better than before – and I didn’t think that was possible. A stunning long weekend – we’ll be back.
M and D R, May 2004

What a magnificent experience from the moment we arrived until we left. Friendly, comfortable, excellent food and wonderful room. Gardens fabulous – thanks for the ‘adopt a dog’ scheme! Hope to return in the not too distant future.

Thank you so much for making our 15th wedding anniversary break a magical time. From the location to the staff and the attention to detail it’s been truly perfect. We couldn’t leave without mentioning the food! You have a wonderful chef and we hope to see him again. I’m hoping we’ll be back!

What a melange of comfort, exquisite cuisine and homely owners; who let you share their hopes – a Scottish experience of excellence with a wee dash of nostalgia!
A and S D Culloden, 28 July 2004

Thank you for making our honeymoon so special. Can’t decide if the gardens, the food or the decor were more spectacular – but either way we are inspired. We’ll be back.
A and J C, 28 July 2004

Thank you all for a wonderful time once again. The gardens were wonderful to wander through and Maggie was a joy to walk. The food was a magical mystery tour each day and was simply divine! The atmosphere was homely and idyllic, it is impossible not to relax in such a lovely environment.
H and P C, 30 July 2005

Spending our first day of married life at Glenapp Castle is a memory we will treasure forever. From the moment we arrived, until now our last night has been a truly fantastic experience. Graham and Fay’s hospitality is second to none, we were made to feel at home from the very first moment. The staff are a credit to them. We enjoyed Maggie’s company and the mystery tour that she took us on! No words can describe the food so we will leave it there!
J and C E, Coventry, 1 August 2004

Beautiful rooms and splendid food and such wonderfully attentive staff. Many thanks for an unforgettable experience.

Our stay here has created an unforgettable memory – what a perfect setting for him to propose! The ‘Fairy Rock’ took my breath away when it appeared (as if by magic). Thank you so much.
L P and D W, August 2004

Indulgence! Pure indulgence! Thanks so much for making our visit to Scotland so very special. Thanks to all the staff for making us feel so welcome.

Your castle story was enchanting and so was our stay. The grace and charm with which you personalise your service elevates the experience to a hugely memorable one. May god hold you in the palm of hands until we hasten back.
W C Rhode Island USA, 29 August 2004

Thank you so much for creating this magical, relaxing and beautiful place. We too will leave with extra special memories. Ed proposed after letting me win at croquet! Very exciting. The food is out of this world too – such delights from the garden. Thank you – we will be back for anniversaries!!

Thank you all for your wonderful hospitality during our honeymoon. From our arrival to departure – it has been sheer extravagance. Glenapp Castle is the most beautiful place with spectacular food – especially the ‘Tarte Tatin’. Fantastic – we’ll be back someday.
