What a lovely little castle, bit tricky to find but well worth a visit even on a very rainy bank holiday! Beautiful rooms and plenty to see, really appreciated the audio tour.

Visited the castle with my daughter and granddaughters aged 7and 5 months. The castle looked amazing in the woody setting. Thought the entry free was reasonable and included audio guide. Found staff, friendly and helpful. The rooms were all finely decorated, although we had to leave pushchair in coat yard due to the steps. Would take picnic next time ground... More

It looks like a toy! You expect a fairy-tale like something and there it is. :) Very romantic! The castle is not very big. It was restored with great care, looks so beautiful and feels cozy. I had a lovely time exploring it and a nice walk through the forest on the way back.

After a walk in the surrounding forest, we had an amazing tea with cake at the cafe. Thank you, my Dear Friend!

Beautiful fairytail castle in the woods. Went here when i was a little boy & have been many times since. Love taking my wife & child here to see it. Wonderful to wander around if the weather is bad. Not huge place but worth spending a few hours in.

The castle itself was well-maintained, the pod-things were a big hit with the children who loved pressing them to the listening stations and hearing all about the rooms. They also enjoyed a... More
