  • Had a lovely experience at the castle, the staff memeber on was very friendly, helpful and answered our questions also had a good knowledge of local castles in the area. 
  • Have had a quick visit during BOXING DAY ! well, we were looking for a place to visit on less than an hour drive. From the first glance, it is historical castle and drives alot of attention for an archaeologist. The landscape around it is unique and spacious. The kids loved the run but it was cold. The Gallery was closed as well, but the look from outside looks like it is worth a visit.
  • Have visited a couple of times, most recently last month. Lovely castle, friendly staff, and a good proper castle to explore. My 3 year old daughter loves it, although I have to keep an eye on her as there are a few places that she could hurt herself if not careful. Highly recommended.
  • Some ruins. See especially nothing.
