  • Brilliant castle in an incredible setting. Features a very unusual italian-inspired 15th century wall. Friendly staff too. Smart stables building too. Free parking. £4.50 admission. The church next door is also worth a visit.
  • An interesting castle, with some interesting features. Good views and some nice walks nearby.
