  • A medieval gaol moonlighting as a castle ruin. Worth a visit if you're passing.
  • Not actually a castle...an old prison. Pretty out of the way, but a good little hidden gem. The church next door was fun to explore as well. Lovely setting.
  • Good castle to visit in about an hour, if in the area would recommend Lydford gorge or the granite way, both fantastic walks.
  • Very interesting Castle with free entry.
  • Does not deserve a detour from my point of view.
