  • It is only little but it really is charming. The castle is in ruins but there is a lake and moat. The grounds are perfect for a family picnic. It may only be a quick lunch stop on your journey but you should definitely go!
  • A nice quiet site to explore. Well kept grounds. Information signs dotted around telling you what you need to know. Well worth a visit.
  • A very nice quiet place, perfect for a Sunday stroll with the kids and the dogs. I've been going for years as I live 5 mins down the road, always took the kids here when they were little. A stunning place in the snow and a beautiful place in the summer!
  • It's great these type of places are being kept open for the public to see. Nice info guides all around the place. Grass nicely mown. Only drawback was that dossers had been using the ruins, and the smell lingers...
  • Great ruins. Lovely place for pictures and sitting taking in the atmosphere. Go at dusk to see the bats!
