  • Had an excellent guided tour of the castle by true local. He was very knowledgeable and very helpful. The castle is tastefully furnished with family furniture

  • It's a beautiful castle, well kept with caring staff. The tour guide had amazing knowledge and gave us a fascinating insight into the castle. The ghost made its presence known. The walked garden is stunning and the grounds are well maintained. The only things I would change are more time in each room to take photos and to soak up the atmosphere. The top floor has been turned into a pseudo art gallery, which adds no value and detracts from the history of the property.
  • First time here. Absolutely stunning place. Grounds are gorgeous, and the castle is amazing. I had a guided tour. It was really interesting and the guide was really good. And friendly.
  • I really enjoyed my visit to Drum. The guide presented background information in a well informed and interactive way. Would have liked to wander in the grounds but prevented because of the weather. Would recommend a visit.
  • It's a small house but with a good history. The tour guide was very good and explained things well.
  • As a place great. However of the three walks only 2 were accessible, which was due to storm arwen. However no prior notice of the closures any where, not on the website nor on the notice board in car park not even mentioned when talking to the reception. The only notice of closure is at the start of the walk, the farm walk doesn't even have that just red and white tape across the paths. I expect better of the nts.
