“Must see facinating tour”
Reviewed 10 February 2013 via mobile

The tour is facinating anf te castle is beautifull. Well worth the effort. The onlt downside is you get the impression that there us quite a lot of the castle you din't get to see. Deffinitely recommended though on a rainy sunday afternoon!

“What a setting - well worth a visit!!”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

It's a real treat to meander freely throughout the inside and grounds of the Chateau and wonder what it must have been like to live there
