  • We decided to have a quick look around this manor house ruin after enjoying Sunday lunch at the Castle Inn. It's an interesting site with some information boards scattered around. With free entry you ...  more »
  • It was an interesting look around but not too much to see that others don't offer. Give it 20 minutes for a quick look and it's OK.  more »
  • Not much to see but having been brought up in the area I needed to tick the box. Make sure you have a walk or visit to the pub to supplement this charming but missable ruin.  more »

  • Lovely little Castle which took about an hour to stroll around and read the boards and take pics. Shame that it isn't manned and that no toilet nearby, nearest about 1/2 a mile down road at a local pub called the Railway, although it does state that one board. No good when you have driven a couple of hours and need to spend a penny. Otherwise nice grounds, only one or two picnic benches and even though signs said dogs not allowed, there were dogs in the grounds, but not surprising as English Heritage book says dogs allowed, so the rules contradict each other. So wouldn't advise to have a picnic on the grass. Would have got 4* but for loo issue, dog rules and lack of picnic tables.
  • Really impressive ruins, cut out of the rock. The children really enjoyed them.
  • Nice little ruin, big grass area leading up to the castle, notice many houses opposite are built with the stone from the ruin. Well worth a visit. Behind is the old disused Wetherby rail track.
  • Ruins of a small mediaeval house.
  • Spectacular
