We spent magical 3 hours there making cake decorations, Chriztmas tree decorations, exploring the castle, meeting Santa and watching old slides on a wall. Staff was amazing. We will come back for more.

Nice area and gardens. We weren't able to see inside due to the time, but that wouldn't have been our desire anyway.

Fantastic class led by Margaret. We were shown how to make two beautiful garlands and then let loose to rummage amongst the amazing materials to create our own. My sister and I had a wonderful time and will definitely be attending the class next year.

Great workshop well run, excellent value for money with loads of materials to pick from and a tour of the Castle thrown in- and 2 garlands to take home to impress the family with- an added bonus- I'll be back next year!
