We all survive much better when we have a little treat to look forward to so I purchased a few days in Castle leslie for J's Xmas pressie and before we knew it we were there. Smudge left with her friend Minnie and hopefully a pleasant sleepover and not keeping the household up at night which she is famous for when away from home.
We had both been here before but only in the grounds walking Smudge.
It was quiet with not many guests about and just one other group in the blue room when we had afternoon tea.

We had both been very busy with work so the break was more than welcome and we didnt realise how tired we were until we got here. We had champagne delivered to our room before we arrived and before we retired our bed was turned down a pleasant note left and dark chocolate truffles.
It was all so perfect. The afternoon tea was the best I have had. I always feel a nuisance with being dairy free but i only had to say once and my dietary requirements were met throughout my stay.

We enjoyed walking around the Castle as we were made to feel as if we are at home.

we enjoyed strolling around the grounds and could imagine what it would have been like to grow up there.
Looking forward to our next visit.
