Unser Aufehnthalt in Ilam Hall war sehr angenehm. Haus, Gärten und Parks und die ganze Umgebung sind wunderbar. Leider hatten wir nur eine Nacht, zu wenig um alles zu sehen. ... und leider hat sich auch kein Gespenst blicken lassen, mein Sohn hätte zu gerne mal eins gesehen ;-)

Genaue Angaben kann ich nicht machen, da ich nur eine Nacht auf einer Radtour verbracht habe. Aber dieses wundervolle Haus steht in einer wundervollen Gegend.
