  • Beautiful place. All day parking £4.40, 20 min walk from car park to the church/Abbey. Plenty to eat and drink, a few gift shops and plenty of holy island mead. Beautiful beach behind the sand dunes as you drive across the causeway.
  • Scaffolding still up. But disappointing as just bare rooms. Artist there which meant every room had a big wooden frame with blankets draped over them. One or 2 room fine but every room a bit much some room too small to walk into as artwork taking it all up. Need tapestries or pictures of castle and area over time in history. Or old furniture something rather than bare damp rooms. Very disappointing Nat trust!!
  • Laughed myself silly at the "art" installation. It should be called 'Laundry'. The castle, though, is magnificent and the views breathtaking.
  • Brilliant place to visit, lovely walks around the island. Great places to visit, with stunning scenery. Then mead store well wortg a visit to sample some tipples.
  • Everybody need to see this place. High recommend. Nice family day out.
