  • Gorgeous place to visit, very peaceful and lots of boards with the history on. Free parking and entry.
  • Not much to do here but worth a visit if passing. Free to get in and interesting viewing
  • A lovely small castle, just a shame there isn't more information about it.
  • A few old walls rather than a castle. Depends how much you like that kind of thing, I suppose.
  • A small castle manor ruin. Well worth a quick look at least.
