Here are a few words from our past guests

We had such an amazing stay at The Old Workshop. Not only was the accommodation was absolutely stunning the setting was so peaceful and gorgeous. We had everything we needed and more. The rooms were clean and had the most comfortable bedding and towels. The kitchen had every utensil and appliance needed. Our kids had so much fun running around the garden and Forest. Also such a beautiful town with shops and restaurants. The location was perfect for castle visits and day trips. Sally and Tim were very helpful and very responsive. Cannot wait to come back and visit again.
