Over the August bank holiday, we had a weekend away in the North East of the UK. This was my opportunity to stay in the first of what I am calling my unique trips. This was in a 12th Century Castle in Darlington. It took us over five hours to drive here from home and when we drove up – its a five minute drive from the A1(M). Its has an impressive driveway, reception, facade
However, the castle room I had booked did not wow me.
No ventilation in the room – made it damp and it was cold night in August. But I can tick the castle of my list !
