Excellent, exactly how I picture what these places look like with all my reading. This enhances my imagination.

full frontal? has a different association for me! smile
Bill Phillips: I can't imagine what you mean Larry wink

so beautifully photographed and that brilliant, blue sky makes a fantastic backdrop
Bill Phillips: It was a glorious day Sherri . Hard to believe it was early November
A proper looking castle!!
Bill Phillips: Most of it is 17th century and Victorian but there is a bit of the original 14th century castle left
Jolies formes pour ce château, j'aime aussi les couleurs.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Martine. It is a lovely castle
Full frontal and the door appears to be an open invitation. Definitely a proper castle, Bill.
Bill Phillips: We spent quite a long time inside including a tour below stairs

That is some entrance here, Bill. And like Ginnie mentions, the door is open and the coffee is ready to go....
Bill Phillips: What more could we want Lady P ? smile

Can you remind me when this was built, please, Bill?
Bill Phillips: The present castle is a Victorian makeover of the 17th century version. There is a little bit of the original 14th century castle but that is only a gateway I think.

Where’s the moat? This is a fine composition but the colour a little over saturated.
Bill Phillips: At the top of a hill a moat is perhaps unnecessary as you can pick off the invaders as they struggle up. rnrnIt is a lot oversaturated ...the seaside postcard look

Looks like they wash cars here on the driveway. Things must be tight for them.
Bill Phillips: Hahahaha The National Trust will do anything to raise money

Magnifique facade.
Bill Phillips: Merci Anne.
A magnificent dwelling, Bill. Is it as deep as it is wide?
Bill Phillips: I am not sure but probably not far off.
The reflection of the blue sky in the window does wonders!
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Mary
Fine shot of the castle, and no vehicles aprked in front!
Bill Phillips: That was a happy bonus Brian

Its an impressive pad. I like the castellations - ummm.. very handy for a castle.
Bill Phillips: Wouldn't be a castle without them really Alan
this old castle has been well preserved Bill... nicely framed....petersmile
Bill Phillips: It is a wonderful building Peter
Looks as though it is Tudor plus additions.
