To all the staff who looked after us on our visit to Picton on Thursday 8th September this year.

Thank you all for making our visit memorable from the grand style arrival on the Castle Forecourt, the guided tour of the castle and the chance to wander and enjoy the peace, beauty and interest of the lovely grounds and gardens. Such an email would not be complete without more thanks, this time to Maria for the coffee and teacakes provided on our arrival and the tasty Courtyard Lunch served just before our departure. Please extend our thanks to her and her staff. The whole experience was brilliant.
