  • Beautiful place lovely walks, motor museum fully stocked with a great array of cars,bikes very nostalgic. One downfall was the coffee house. Expensive with instant coffee n tea. £2.50 for a shop bought sausage roll no other hot food on offer and shop bought cakes, Not much of a choice. Otherwise castle was just a tower but beautiful ruins and views.
  • Expensive to go and look at the car collection. It could do with some reorganising as the layout didn't make sense, probably did to someone but not me. Kids will get fed up as there is no interactive stuff for them to play with, just lots of don't touch signs, so probably better for more mature visitors for this reason. Take a picnic as the cafe is utter rubbish and there is no gift shop! Seriously missing a trick there. The staff are pleasant and very knowledgeable it just needs the site dragging into the 21st Century.
  • Excellent collection of cars, motorbikes and other vehicles. Very friendly staff and the castle tower is worth a visit too. Basic but lovely tea room too.
  • Well worth a visit, superb collection of vehicles both historic and nostalgic, some quite rare examples, pleasant walk round the grounds to see the castle remains, you can also go to the top of the tower , there is a small tea room with drinks and snacks, nice relaxing couple of hours spent there.
  • Great car collection. Lovely tea room. If you climb to the top of the castle turret you are rewarded with amazing views.
