At the end of a curved drive past a walled garden and lake, this 16th-century castle has paneled corridors, tasseled drapes, and coats of armor that create an "old-world feel." Rooms showcase Empire furnishings and Canovas wallpaper. The formal oak dining room serves "fresh, delicious" local seafood and meat dishes to harp strains; even the casual pub presents club sandwiches on china. Staff "do everything to fulfill your needs."
