  • Used in many films and TV shows. It's a lot more to see than it looks from the outside. Definitely worth a visit. Great little gift shop inside. Be careful turning in to the driveway, its very tight and some people don't pay as good attention.
  • A very nice castle to visit. After visiting the castle we went for a walk and the area is simply amazing. Very friendly staff and this is the first time that a free audio guide is provided! This really made our visit more interesting and fruitful.
