  • Lovely to see, though I only had a walk around the outside as it was very expensive to go through the entrance and sit in the open air (really, why charge for this?!). Having lived in the area since I...  more »
  • 2014 we here have been and have Passport with the oversea visitor by the heritage organization no entry admission must pay more (in advance already did). The water Castle was never completed by his men. And yet it looks partly still very well preserved in comparison with others. On the grounds of the Castle (the island) various geese have been on the road, have not evolved by the visitors can be disturbing. We were able to stroll around in the building and on the grounds and take a look at all alone. It is worth to go around the island once the little way. It's all very quiet and idyllic held. We have met an angler who has fished in the "moat" around the island around from the "mainland". Whether he had special rights, or was just a simple visitor, is not known to us. It is worth to look at this piece of history. Have fun!

  • Great little castle, never fully constructed. A great spot for a half day visit, this is a very early example of building castles/palaces in brick . open during the summer on Saturday's, Sunday's and Bank Hol's. Small car park (but never seems full), dog's allowed but no toilets and limited range of items for sale.
  • Awesome place with a charming story behind it. Bringing my kids here was a great day out and a fascinating experience! The brickwork in the castle was exquisite.
  • Shame it isn't open all year round. Idyllic setting, really peaceful.
  • Open on Saturdays Sundays and Bank Holidays from 1st May to 1st Sept a very nice place to visit good pub next door that dose hot food
  • I used to play there as a child in the 1970's. I think it was 2p to go in. One of us would distract the old man in his little shed at the end of the drawbridge while the others sneaked past. He MUST have known what was going on when there was suddenly a dozen kids running around with invisible machine guns. Probably not worth travelling too far to see it tho.
