  • A beautiful place for a walk on a cloudy and drizzly day, peaceful and calming. This would be lovely on a sunny day. Well worth a visit.

  • 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.
