  • Fabulous day out, fantastic grounds, spend all day there as so much to see and do. The grounds are vast. Loved it, even my pot of tea and Scone with clotted cream and jam. Lovely gift shop. All staff approachable, helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Stunning Castle & Grounds.
  • It was an amazing place to visit. I loved every minute that I spent in the castle. First I stopped to enjoy a delicious sandwich and a salad. The coffee and cake was amazing. The restaurant is looking amazing and I enjoyed the time I spent there. The staff is friendly and helpful. The garden is very well maintained and I enjoyed the walk.
  • Fabulous day out. The castle is full of interesting facts and information. We spent a few hours walking in the beautiful gardens. Enjoyed a lovely meal in the restaurant and finished off with some retail therapy in the gift shop. The staff in all areas were very organised, friendly and helpful. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Absolutely gorgeous settings with lovely areas to walk through. The tearoom is set in the original castle kitchen and full of history like the rest of the castle. The staff are helpful and extremely friendly
  • Absolutely amazing place. We travelled from Liverpool and we are so glad we stopped at this wonderful castle and grounds. So beautiful with so much to see and do too
