  • Poo poo poo that's it, inside the castle there is pigeon poo and had to step over pigeons to look inside, the grounds we're covered in duck poo and feathers, can take dogs on lead but could not find a bin to put the mess in and one portaloo no shop no benches would not recommend having a picnic there because of all the poo and there's nowhere to sit. Nice place but full of mess.
  • Place was small but that was not the big problem. The problem was that there is piggin and duck poo all over the place and in every place of the castle. It just put me off ever going again. It just needs to be closed and a deep clean of the interior place from the bridge to the grounds and the castle. I would be scared to put a picnic blanket down because of all the bird poo that will get on it NEVER EVER GOING AGAIN
  • An interesting moated place. English Heritage owned. But you can walk round the edge anytime. Not busy either.
  • Peaceful and calming but full of poo. It is all over the grass and on the steps, not much to see as well. No benches or bins either
  • Pretty place to go if passing through area.
