  • We spent 4 hours in this place as we wanted to stay around for the jousting. It is a little run down and could use some maintenance in many areas. The place is more tailored for children, however the ...  more »

  • A great attraction that has a uniqueness and charm about it. Loved the jousting and archery and the horses were amazing. We stayed in the castle that night and we were very comfortable in the king size bed. I much prefer this to any other theme park. My daughter loved her face painting and sword fighting with the knight. Would thoroughly recommend.
  • Excellent day trip for kids. Lots to do. Jousting and horse skills demo were excellent entertainment. In house food {pies, sandwiches, sausages and wood fired pizza) is OK and reasonably priced. Overnight accommodation is adequate but need to bring own entertainment, it is a few minutes drive from town.
  • Went with my wife and kids of various ages and we loved it. Staff stay in character and are extremely friendly and helpful. Shows were good and we had a full day of doing everything. Food us reasonably priced for an attraction and good quality. Did not stay in the accomodation but did years ago. Talking to guests who stayed the previous night and they were very happy. Going back next school holidays.
  • What an awesome experience. At age 49 I was the oldest child there. If I have to pick my favourite part, it is definitely the excellent sense of humour of the actors. I loved it and cannot wait to revisit. Do yourself a favour and go. The accommodation is also unique in every aspect. Have a sleep over and fully enjoy this very unique castle and what it has to offer. I highly recommend this experience.
  • I loved this place, is so fun and the accommodation especially the huge shower was amazing. Got to see the jousting and Goliath is the best horse ever! Can't wait to go back!
