  • Beautiful place with wonderful views from the top. Place is well maintained and looked after. Staff are as friendly as you'd expect from EH (in other words 'very', just to clear up any confusion).
  • On a sunny day a top place to visit with the steam trains going past, behind some trees, and lovely views out across the countryside. Toilets are in carport and small gift shop on site with hot drink machine and cold drinks from fridge. Good food stops in Pickering it's self so on problem just take a picnic and enjoy to views.
  • A small but beautiful castle. A great place for children to explore.
  • Nice old ruins, never busy... Very peaceful.
  • Nice place to visit on a sunny day, tables and benches and lots of grass to sit on for a picnic, small car park, shop and toilets
