Breathtaking grounds and a super castle. We had an amazing day. The falconer show was interesting and fun. Can't wait to go back.

Lovely small castle, which is highly priced - although you buy a ticket which can be used multiple times in the next 12 months - realistically I never went back. It was a very busy day overrun by mainly French school children.

A different kind of ordinary castles. In the nature, with lakes and animals. Amazing view, very picturesque and huge history. The price was logical.More

This was my first visit to this historic place and I certainly plan to return. Being mid week, and in term time, there were very few people about which gave the whole place a quiet serenity. The weather was dry, which was fortunate, so walking...More
