A very welcoming visit to a castle with great heritage. The only downside for me was the lack of options in the cafe for coeliacs. Other than that I would recommend this as a great day out in a rural castle.

This castle has the tower house open for visitors. Very interesting history and a much more personal experience with the notes written by the owner in the visitor rooms. A bit of a French touch and ceiling beams in some rooms are very interesting. Love...More
