    "f you'd like to visit a stately Manor that will make you feel like a prince and a princess. This is the place. Where royalty has visited and celebrities have slept. This beautiful home rests on Acres of lush landscaping and is decorated to fit a king. We rented a car and visited neighboring castles and we're not disappointed. When we packed our bags and said goodbye to the incredible staff and the wonderful owners. We promise to return."
