We had coffee and excellent cakes here and wandered in the stunning gardens for a while. The fountains are beautiful, they run for a few minutes at the top of the hour. It's well worth the wait, especially on a hot day.

Really well kept gardens, we didn't go inside the castle. One of the best gardens I've seen. Really nice style of building.
