Unsurprisingly, those who have been lucky to stay at The Gart have been compelled to share their experience on Tripadvisor.

One customer wrote: "We have booked various castle locations for "big birthdays" over the past 20 years but you will never find anything like The Gart. The owners' own pop-artwork and designer clothing is in evidence throughout the property, mixed with wonderful object d'art which you will keep spotting during the stay. The creative style of the owners is unique and makes a fascinating conversation piece with all the guests."

While another holidaymaker said: "Everything was perfect for us and our guests had an unforgettable time. It’s such a unique place in a gorgeous setting with amazing views, walks and scenery all around. The in-house catering was perfect. Accommodation is outstanding!"
