As promised before, I am finally back to write my long overdue (sorry!) Augill Castle post. This will generally be a description of the castle itself, and not necessarily the experiences we had. (Forewarning, all these photos are from the Augill Castle website.)
ROOM 1: The Foyer
This room was quite fancy, and was really more of a small living or common room. I loved sitting in front of the woodstove, drinking tea and reading.
ROOM 2: The Living Room
When we were there that chair on the end (under the gazelle) was a wide, leather armchair, and I would sit there and read The Secret Garden, imagining I was in Misselthwaite Manor.
ROOM 3: The Great British Bar (that was actually on the label on the door.)
Again, this photo only shows half the room, the other half consists of a couch area, and a counter with tea things and a jar of oatmeal cookies. (I ate a loooooot of those…) One thing to notice, is that behind that lamp on the right are some colorful bottles, those are non-alcoholic, soda-type drinks, one of which is a rose lemonade, which I had one of. It was delicious.
ROOM 4: The Movie Theater (or, as the Brits say it, The Cinema.)
Not much to say here. It was just a movie theater, and we used it a lot. Moving on…
ROOM 5: The Library
When we were there, in place of those couches was a pool table, and a few days later, a ping-pong table. Also, the chess board was a chest full of dress-up clothes. Behind the camera are cubbies with bags of toys.
ROOM 6: The Kids’ Room
It was a lot messier when we occupied it! 😳
We also had to ask for extra bedding and two bedrolls so we could all fit! And we took turns on who got the fancy bed.
ROOM 7: The Parents and Dug Room
I came here surprisingly often, because I drank a lot of tea, and therefore used a lot of mugs!
That’s all for now, bye!!
