We had a nice stop here. We did not enter the house but so enjoyed walking the beautiful gardens, lake view and scenery. I recommend this stop.

This is such a magical place. Well worth a visit. The tree in the centre of the Abbey is beautiful. A very special place. So much so that we had our wedding ceremony here. It was just perfect.

Our horse and carriage ride stopped here for us to explore the ruins. They were very interesting. There is a fascinating tree growing in the middle of the ruins. I recommend a brief stop.
