‘Just Fab’

“My stay at Hodson Bay was part of a mini tour with my 10yr old daughter. I booked the medieval triangle as part of it and I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised! The castle tour really blew me away as I was expecting more of a run down battered ruin. Instead we were greeted by a very modern interpretive and interactive tourist centre. Really top quality venue and very impressed.”
