For part of the time we split up, with Roger taking Hugh and the three girls going with me. We met up in the playground, and in the maze. Because the grounds are so huge - over 6 acres - a lot of people can be visiting at one time without the place feeling crowded.
For me the highlight was the chateau, which is just like a family home (well alright - not my family home!), and the atmosphere inside was very homely. I loved the layout of the rooms, and the way it was all displayed. I was interested to read that it was the wife of the purchaser in 1906 who provided the finance for the purchase - she was a rich American heiress.
