Lovely castle ideal for picnic and easy to spend a couple of hours here. Area well kept and lovely lake with swans. Large ish carpark. No toilets.
I agree that it is a beautiful and very interesting, peaceful place to visit, but I was worried about the green algae almost totally covering the water. I visited recently and felt sorry for the problems this must cause the wildlife in the area. I hope something can be done about it. Joy Bate.
You get a sense of history past in the barron landscape around this place. To the think how big this place would of been if it wasn't for the civil war
excellent place for an historic afternoon, very informative signs giving an insight about the workings of the castle. Agree with previous post about better route signs.
An impressive castle and later gatehouse with a long history. Well worth a visit to this out of the way gem. A ruin, but still gives an insight into how it looked and was laid out.
