Beautiful gardens and perfect place for a walk. The Gallery is worth a visit. The coffee shop is difficult to get seating in when it's busy and the Sunday hours aren't great. Best to check in advance. There's a small gift shop too. Parking is...More

There is only a ruin of the Castle which burned down at the start of the 20th century. You mainly see and enjoy the gardens.
