  • Excellent family day at the castle. Staff wonderfully helpful. Greig the house guide was perfect. The tour had lots of young children but he held their attention perfectly. The weather was awful - so have a great reason to head back and enjoy the outdoor space another day soon.
  • Lovely castle and spectacular views, enjoyed the tour round. Lovely cafe with great selection of treats, gift shop is great. Loved the room with all the dresses and robes of the Royal family.
  • Thoroughly enjoyable visit. The tour guide was great, telling the stories and introducing the ghosts. Garden trails will be wonderful in the summer.
  • Awesome time even with the on and off rain for Easter on the Castle Grounds on an Egg Hunt. Met Easter Bunny too! Will definitely come again and bring friends and family. Lovely and impresive place and really nice& welcoming staff working there.
  • Great day out. Bit more exciting than other castles, let's face it there are a lot in these parts, this one stands out from the crowd!
