  • Took the Mrs as she loves castles and I haven't been here for at least 25 years. Entrance fee is a bit expensive. For 2 adults and parking it was just over £17. There's a few things to see on the walk...  more »

  • This often overlooked castle in Cheshire, is well worth visiting. It is a pleasant drive through the country lanes to get there, and the car park is a good size and mostly grass so you can pic-nic nex...  more »

  • Great views from the ruins. A nice walk through the woodland surrounding the castle. If you are a member of English Heritage you don't need to pay an entrance fee, however, if you use the car park you will have to pay the cost of the car park as the land is owned by a local farmer. The castle itself is small and consists of ruined castle walls. There are no rooms to walk through apart from a circular covered area to the left of the entrance of the main castle area. A nice trip out if you are interested in history but not somewhere to stay for the day.
  • Worth getting the guidebook for £3.50 to gain more insight to the site as there are no information boards around. Lovely site with good views and peregrine falcons circling around. Car park is £3 to be paid in the shop (machine not working as at September 1st 2017).
  • Part of the Cheshire run, include the Ice Cream Factory, the Candle Factory etc. Lovely day out. NOTE: I've read complaints about being charged for entry. My answer: How do you think these places are staffed and maintained? Get a life meanies or don't bother coming.
  • Lovely ruined castle to visit. The walk up is well worth it to see the fantastic views at the top, on a good day up to 30 miles (so i was told!) There is also a nice woodland walk to take around the base of the hill which the castle stands on.
  • Small castle. Great views. Pleasant grounds. Lovely walk in woods around base for just over half an hour. Good roads around for biking!
