Well worth a visit. The house has a fascinating history having been owned by the same family since it was built around 1180. There are beautiful gardens to explore. Well worth a visit.

With a 2.3 km driveway along side a stream with pheasants crisscrossing the surrounding grassland, this reminded me of a time when the pace of life was so much easier! I drove into a spacious courtyard with a semi circle of ornate statues at one...More
