The castle is fascinating and the park has more than you would expect to catch your interest--and the interest of everyone in your family.

The park is a great place to visit. There is much to see in the village, a great playground for the kiddos, and a nice shop too.

Spent a pleasant afternoon exploring the grounds of the park. The reconstructed building were very well kept. Would have liked to have seen more village animators.

We spent a few hours here, wished we had more time. Even though it was raining, we enjoyed it immensely. For tourists seeking the old thatched roof cottages (and not seeing too many while touring), this is the place! Wonderful representation of life in19th century...More
