Beautiful walk through the woods up a very well maintained gravel pathway to the first of two beautiful gate houses - then you walk a little further and not only do you discover the most romantic gothic style architectural second gate house but a pretty little waterfall that just adds to the magic. Well worth a visit

I was taken here by a local gentleman, who knew his way around. When he led me up the path and showed me the towers I was in awe, it was very impressive. He then took me to see the waterfall, along a damp and slippy path (wear old shoes) , to top off a wonderful evening, this trip then... More

Difficult to find this place - had to get directions and map from Tourist office - buy worth it, was a nice walk and did not expect what we found there. Great way for kids to run off energy!
