A little walk from the village comes to this cute bridge which provides for a very pleasant walk and photo opportunity with a little difference

This is one of those iconic locations that we return to again and again. It is also the start to a lovely short walk along the back of the castle by the river. So pretty.

You are best parking and find signs for the watermill, as the the bridge is a 30 second walk away
