  • Great place to explore with the kids. Fantastic views. Great picnic spot too. Parking available and in a lovely spot to enjoy the local walks. Dog friendly too as long as they are on their leads. Can highly recommend.
  • Historic castle, great couple of hours looking around. Plenty of information to read, and some great views. Visit on a dry day as castle has no roof. You can picnic in the grounds, there's some tables, also toilets and a gift shop with friendly staff.
  • Hidden gem of a place. Great for a quick visit or make more of a day of it and bring a picnic lunch. Lots of open space. My kids loved exploring and running around the moat.
  • Great little castle which has remained remarkably intact over the centuries. It has a reasonably interesting history and is blessed with outstanding views of the surrounding countryside.
  • We visited on a damp day, the low cloud and mist adding to the ambience of the location. Would be an idyllic spot to picnic on a warm sunny day, putting yourself in the shoes of previous incumbents enjoying views down the valley.
