The gardens were excellent and the walks available from and around the property were also excellent. The castle itself was really disappointing, the minimal number of rooms that you were allowed in all seemed the same but with different furniture i.e a bed or a...More
Had a great visit. Only problem is that the web site is wrong about signing in early for the house guided tour. One needs to arrive at least 45 - 60 minutes before the tour starts in order to get a place.
