Apart form the castle itself there are more walking routes than you can cover in a day. From the Swan Pond, to the walled garden, the deer park, access down to some beautiful beaches as well as an adventure playground, we have spent many a happy hour there as a family over the years.
I was surprised back the lack of butterflies in amongst all the gorgeous flowers, though I did manage to get a picture of one of only two that we saw, but seems to be a theme here this year, just am no seeing butterflies anywhere we go.
We then went up to the deer park to look at the animals and took some more photos.
We walked up to the castle and had a look round inside at the changes that have been made since we were last in there. The view left a lot to be desired as the mist had rolled in and there was a very slight spit in the air.
Sharing this picture with you, he almost seems to be staring at me.
Love how they have done up the hallway that leads into the kitchen, this would have been the area the servants lived in back in the day, it has quotes from servants of the time inscribed onto the walls, really does make you think about the existence they use to have, and I leave with you
