Nice stop for a small castle. Good view from the tower. Gift shop with added art exhibition. They offer dinner with theater, seems nice.

Went to visit the castle, the craft shop upstairs, then came back later for the Banquet. The Staff are so welcoming and helpful. The banquet was awesome, food just wonderful, the Mead very tasty. The show powerful, and fun.
