Hello there, thank you so much for the input. We certainly have big plans to continue maintaining and upgrading the Castle. You are absolutely right, she is beautiful, and is well loved! We hope you stop in for a visit again some time.

This is truly a beautiful renovation of a 19th century home. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I cannot wait to visit and have tea with my daughter.

When you enter, there’s an exhibit on the first floor with historical fire fighting displays. Very well done. I was pleasantly surprised at how they have upkept the entire house through the years.
