  • Worth a tour of the house as the underground servants parts are intresting
  • Grand old house with it's original regency furniture.
  • Nice house will go back in a few years to see how the servants level looks after remodel
  • Very nice architecture. The guide is very kind. And the history of the castle is interesting in particular the sub floor for the service people built such that they are never visible from the outside.
