    Although not very much left the information boards give a good indication of how it looked back in the day. Very peaceful and a nice place for a picnic on a fine day.  more »

  • Interesting for a short visit. I couldn't really spend more than half an hour here as it's a ruin. Saying that, the sign boards were extremely useful as it's a really picturesque little village with a pub a few metres from the castle. Parking a problem and rather than try and park by the castle entrance it's easier to park in the village and walk a very short distance. It's a seriously atmospheric place with fabulous views. And you can walk along the walls, or what's left of them.
  • Beautiful castle ruins great for kids sat navigation does not seem to recognise it
  • You need to use your imagination so a great place to take the kids!
  • Before you go you should know it's a complete ruin, but great for exploring and completely free. Keep an eye on children as there are some deceptively high drops. There are some nice display boards to show the Castle in its former glory.
  • Pleasant walk In the ruins of a castle and the best part admission is free
