  • Just like castles should be! Lots of staircases, nooks, crannies and hidey holes. It is amazing for children, and even has a real attic with a roof and window, a dungeon and a secret hiding place. Lovely pleasance (garden) and a warm, genuine, friendly welcome from the caretaker. Definitely worth the trek down the narrow country roads.
  • A really atmospheric Castle. Built to be showy rather than defensive, with ornate carvings and large windows. Beautifully preserved flag stone floor in the great hall and interesting bee boles built into the walls. Friendly helpful staff. Well worth a few hours to look around.
  • Nice little castle to explore , not too much to see but interesting and scenic , worth a pop in if you are driving by
  • Cute little castle, we were the only 2 visitors that afternoon :)
  • Interesting history. Well suited for visitors.
