We bought a guide tour to this castle on 19.09.2015. The guide told very interesting facts about this castle. I still remenbmer a number of stories about people live in the middle ages. I would recommend this guide tour.

Rooms are quite large and comfortable...swans glide by on the adjacent river. Staff will give you a golf cart tour of the grounds that are quite large. We stayed in the Manor but there are beautiful modern condos on the property that would be good...More
