The Lodge adjacent to the castle is a wonderful place for 'quirky' accommodation, staying in one of the 'themed' rooms. (We stayed in the 'Gold Rush', with a huge bed fashioned out of a wagon -- complete with wheels and driver's seat!) We had dinner in the castle's dining room with other lodge guests; I'd definitely recommend doing this, if only for the experience of being in the castle at night (and the food was great, too).
