Clayshire Castle

It's a castle in the middle of a small forest surrounded by fields. There are a few small signs for the castle off a county road. When you get there, you enter down a long gravel drive through the forest and it opens to a clearing with a castle in the middle of the clearing on the hill. There's a giant chess set and hedge maze in the clearing. I think you can book a stay overnight there, and some locals mentioned a festival that's held there. It's worth the drive off of the beaten path to see this castle in the middle of nowhere.
