Historic rooms, small and kind of pricey. If you like historic sites you will love this place. The grounds are pristine, the staff very knowledgeable.

Be prepared to be awe struck when you come here. Not only is the castle breath taking, but so are the views from every area of the property. There are opportunities to see several various species of wildlife, so keep your camera ready.

Yes. You must book either a tour or a tea to get onto the grounds. The tour price is, I believe, the least expensive option. They also offer many concerts and special events at very reasonable prices for the quality. There... More
