A Victorian folly, looks like a fairy tale castle, actually a copy of a medieval hunting lodge - great for families. 3 miles away.

This fairytale castle is a popular wedding venue and tourist attraction. It still has its original features. The castle can be accessed by public transport or car within 20 minutes.
