Reasons for trip

Even though neither of us knew anything about the TV series The Prisoner, my friend and I decided to visit this little village anyway as it looked very pretty. The weather was glorious during our visit, which obviously helped.

Two of the main buildings were out of bounds due to weddings taking place, and I felt that there possibly should’ve been a discount on the entry fee to reflect this. We also didn’t realise people actually live on the site, so there were other areas with restricted access. It’s very hilly, which was fine for us but may not suit everyone. We saw numerous golf buggies ferrying wedding guests around the site.

I have to say that the buildings were absolutely lovely and the views spectacular. Some of the flowers were a bit past their prime but there were still some nice blooms about, however the fountain could’ve done with a bit more water in it as it seemed half empty.

There were the usual gift shops and a couple of cafes (such a shame about the other venues being closed to the public as we’d have liked afternoon tea in the hotel).

We enjoyed the free miniature train ride through the woods, although the carriages got rather cramped (good job it was just a short trip).

Easy to park, although the road leading to the site was very narrow and twisty.
