  • Well maintained. I only stopped by for a short while, but could be tempted to revisit for a guided tour. Handsome bandstand too.
  • Not much here but worth a visit when there's an event on. Otherwise it's just a nice place to sit and eat your lunch.
  • Peaceful relaxing place to go. Some evenings there is a band playing
  • Beautiful castle and ground. The castle is mostly in ruins but what is left is very impressive. The grounds are small but there is more parkland the other side of the river. Currently under repair so a little spoilt by lots of scaffolding.
  • Very nice place to relax, great views and often live brass bands in the summer
