In there rear of the castle there's a small addition that houses a single enormous bell. The room has a simple tin roof and isn't fancy or ornate (or insulated), but it's framed out with enourmous beams and the wooden floors are washed and worn down in a satisfying way. There's a small stool, very low to the ground, indicating that it's ok to sit here for a while if you want.
