  • We enjoyed a stroll around the grounds and an English tour of the house. Unfortunately there are very little furnishings but the paintings make the visit worth it.  more »
  • We visited this place on the weekend and it was a day well spent.There were plenty of interesting vegetation to admire and there were benches to sit and relax. Children could play in the playground.  more »
  • Beautiful gardens and layout, lovely castle with interesting history and nuance. We were very entertained by the peacocks around the area.  more »

  • Perfect place to hang out with friends. Nature is amazing, so peacocks are Right destination for weekend :)
  • Nice park with lots of peacocks! You can easily spend some hours walking here.
  • Tranquil palace grounds. They had lots of peacocks moving about freely. The restaurant near the palace just outside the entrance was great too.
  • Lovely and nice place. Closed during some parts of the year, but one can still visit the huge sorrounding lawns and garden here. The castle is also nice to visit
  • Beatiful peacocks all over grounds.
