  • £14 each entry, 'castle' - no explanation other than "this is one of the oldest examples of Brick built castle and therefore grade 1 listed". 'Woodland walk' - pleasant but could have been longer. 'Car collection' - eclectic mix of cars, bikes, China plates, children's toys, and a hip bath.... Interesting, but no real connection. As the majority of the collection seems to have been donated, I'm unsure what the £14 per person admission was for. £1.25 for a cup of tea was a little steep, when other attractions offer £1.50 for a pot. All in all, more information on Google than available on site. Would not recommend.
  • A very enjoyable visit. My prime reason for the visit was to see the castle, however, I was very surprised to see an incorrect detail given on the information board at the entrance to the castle. It stated, that the person who had the castle built was a Sir John Falstaff (a fictional character created by Shakespeare) when in fact it was Sir John Fastolf. The car museum was terrific and staffed by very helpful and knowledgeable volunteers.
  • Great place to visit if it was not too expensive and when you get in you find you cant take photos of the cars in the museum as owner does not like it he likes your money for getting in though. There are some vehicles outside then you can visit castle and go to top for FREE. If you fancy there is a café for drinks and cakes.
  • peaceful, beautiful setting, wild life..plenty of birds singing, beautiful karma to de-stress ones mind. motor museum is very good but once seen its enough; as its incredibly expensive approx 15 pounds per person as of sept 2015 scandalous prices. but the beauty is the area and surrounding area such peace (when no cars or tractors speeding on the narrow lanes!!
  • A brilliant day at the Car museum. Fabulous exhibits and very helpful knowledgable staff. Then a visit to the lovely tea shop before the visiting the Castle ruins and climb up the 112 steps of the tower. The view is incredible. A great day out and value for money. Just a shame there are no pictures of the original castle in its former glory. A good day with no commercial rubbish and a chance to simply enjoy history.
