The Waterwheel is a ruin but you can wander round if you are careful. This is a natural forest setting so you can appreciate the greenery and wildlife.

There is a charred water wheel here that vandals have ruined. We visited 15 years ago and it was lovely. Nothing here

Derelict used to have a restaurant and be run professionally. Now is run down, overgrown, with cows, goats roaming around and you have to watch your step too. Amusing as you can see remnants of a previous party or something. Still worth a walk through.

We visited in January and met the owners. The place was reopened and under restauration. It had been smashed when they lived abroad. Now they gave good tours and served delicious soup. Very special place, well worth the visit.

With a newly fallen tree blocking the entrance to the old plantation the flora around the sight have truly enveloped its previous grandeur to surprisingly mirror a set from Jurassic Park. Trees grow though walls, bats nest in the ceiling, and floorboards creak as you...More
