Guides in every room gave life to the experience. The lack of plumbing was something we hadn't thought of! Downstairs was as interesting as upstairs.
Stunning, beautiful, interesting, informative, intriguing.... Inly went for a quick look, but got sucked in by the sheer beauty of this place and the gushing enthusiasm of the people there who obviously love their history.
