Castle View Guest House occupies the former birthplace of Kenneth Grahame (1859-1932), author of “The Wind in the Willows” and “The Reluctant Dragon”. Both books were adapted into films by Disney. Born on 8th March 1859, Graham spent much of his first year at Castle Terrace before his family relocated to the west coast of Scotland and then on to Berkshire where he lived with Granny Ingles. His most celebrated book – The Wind in the Willows – is still enjoyed by adults and children today, whether in book form or in the films, while Toad remains one of the most celebrated and beloved characters of the book. The Wind in the Willows won the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award in 1958.
