Even though the castle was closed, we were very happy with our visit to the gardens. They are so terribly well-kept and so beautiful in their symmetrical design.
Worth while to visit, even when the castle itself was closed.

Very impressed by the staff who took us around the castle on the tour. Impressive knowledge of the history, art and many anecdotal stories.

Lots of photo opportunities outside, sadly no photography inside the castle.
There are lots of outside areas to discover too

Definitely worth the long detour from the motorway

A beautiful Castle set in even more beautiful natural surroundings, the views across the local countryside are magnificent. Entry to the Castle is by Guided tour only and the guides are very knowledgeable. Very well worth a visit.
