“Take a tour of the privately owned and lived in castle. It is often described as a living museum. Well worth a visit. Tour is at 3pm each weekend or can be arranged at other times by appointment. Guests staying in the castle get a free tour when they arrive. You can also visit the lush gardens around the castle for beautiful walks and a scenery.”
