Brilliant experience visiting this castle and the wonderful gardens. The gardens are amazing. The castle is fantastic. The video shows are informative and really add to the positive experience. My friend and I had a brilliant day. We had a cream tea him at there and thus was also excellent. Well worth a day out there. We could have spent even more time there than we did and hopefully will go back soon.
A great event held in the castle grounds. Felt like it was a bit quiet but for the first year running it wasn't too bad. Great ideas happening and I wish it to return next year. Made a lovely backdrop to some fantasy photos, just wish we could have gotten in almost the entrance way for more.
