Castle Ellen is about as basic as it gets (with the exception of our recently installed Wifi and an electric shower) :-). No mod cons ! Not far from how it was in 1890 with the exception of an electric shower. If you are looking for a most unusual experience, Castle Ellen will deliver this and much more.
