This is really worth a visit. Never heard of it before the hotel owner mentioned it. Well laid out and kept, with enthusiastic guides giving good explanations. Sad that a self made man, who retired and sold up and married a younger woman, built the...More

A great take, some interesting local history, and excellent lunch. The Castle tour is self guided, so .you can take as much or as little time exploring as you want. The "Basement Tour" is new, is guided, and was fascinating. To see how the infrastructure...More

No, unfortunately! The town has many hotels and B&B's. If you don't mind a little drive you can stay at one of the resorts by the lake.
