Belle Isle Castle

26 of us took over the whole of the magnificent Belle Isle Castle last week for 3 nights/4 days. 16 adults and 10 kids filled the grandiose property in Lisbellaw. We took enough food, provisions and drink for the four days and treated ourselves to a meal out on one night and takeaway pizza on another. 
The castle is set in its own private estate and there is plenty to do from walking to sailing, croquet to clay pigeon shooting. We took cricket sets, swingball, badminton, footy and rugby balls and all of us partook.
There was more than enough cutlery, crockery, glasses and gadgets to keep us going in the fully equipped kitchens. Also on hand were dish washers, glass washers, washing machines, fridges, gas and electric cookers and a 24/7 running Aga!!! There is a stock of tea/coffee and cereals available but we brought our own.
In the numerous reception areas were loads of books/magazines, TVs, Ipad dock, brilliant comfy sturdy furniture and fires in every room.
The many bedrooms were tastefully decorated in period furniture, some even having four poster beds!!! There was lots of hanging space (with hangers) and bathroom robes and toiletries were provided.
The most impressive room was the banqueting room. Beautiful furniture, a huge stags head candlearbre and a long table which the 26 of us all sat around.
It would be lovely to stay here for longer!!! It was really well worth it-the whole family was under the one amazing roof!!
