  • This castle is being renovated by a couple for the past 25 years. They give a fantastic tour, tell you the history of the house and the things they have had to do to save the structure. This is a must see place, well worth the effort to visit.
  • Not so much a castle as a stately home, well worth a visit, grounds are beautiful loads of peacocks! The inside is very well preserved ,cant take photos unfortunately but you can imagine how they lived hundreds of years ago.Very peaceful.
