Augill Castle can claim to have a sense of fun: You might find a piano in your bathroom, or a church pew next to the loo, maybe even an Indonesian blowpipe above your bed. Your surroundings may be quirky, but the housekeeping is far from it: enjoy the feeling of order and of things running on rails. Beds are large and comfortable, and bedrooms are well-enough equipped to keep you busy on a lazy afternoon indoors.
  Each of the 11 rooms are of a similar standard, but with a very different character. Some have four-poster beds, others have four-poster baths. There are turrets for wardrobes, stained glass windows and big views. You'll find bold colours and well chosen antiques. It's not chintzy, but if you feel happiest in a modern, uncluttered interior with neutrally coloured fabrics and furnishings, then this probably isn't the place for you.
