  • The views of the surrounding countryside are superb, exploring the castle you get a real sense of the history of place, with a little imagination you can picture medieval serfs and Lord and Lady of the castle with all the hustle and bustle if the times, with the cave below an interesting feature to explore..easily imagined as the castle dungeon. Then walking down to the coffee shop, a surprise awaits as you walk 8n and are free Ted by the helpful, friendly walking through to the function room at the back with its full bar and seating areas with quirky milk churns as table supports with views from the full length windows of the surrounding countryside...a great place for a quick ale and bite to eat before moving on..I imagine it can get quite busy during the spring/summer holidays seasons, but I had the castle all to myself in Dec free to roam & explore and take pictures. A wonderful place to visit any time of the year.
  • A fantastic location with beautiful surroundings. Before the castle, you can explore a medieval farmhouse and get a bite to eat. There was a little renovation happening on our visit, so we couldn't see all of the castle, but we will be sure to return.
  • Impressive castle on top of a craggy hill. Take care exploring the cave, which is deep, dark and slippery. The cafe at the bottom is well worth a stop too
  • A wonderful ruin with a clean tea room offering nice hot food, which is needed as the wind can be rather bitter. Well worth it to see the red kites. There is also a long dark tunnel to investigate, recommend boots or trainers & a couple of bright torches, available to hire from the tea room.
  • A great way to spend a couple of hours. Be sure to check out the cave! £5 admission charge payable in the gift/coffee shop where hot snacks are available.
