  • Friendly staff, not a lot to see but easy to find and in a nice setting. Made a good break in our journey.
  • Small castle ruins - gr8 place to take a picnic
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • A great place to visit. Very accessible, full of history and fascinating
