  • If you fancy a short walk before or after dinner, the Castle is only 5 - 10 mins from Castle Inn. Only a small site but has an excellent information board explaining the history of the castle.  more »

  • Great place to get a feeling of history. Kids can run all over and also read the easy info boards. Free too!! Lovely autumn morning visit... will be back!
  • A great place to walk and explore for about an hour or two. Bring your picnic because there are benches as well as plenty of green grass that is well maintained. The castle itself is clean and easily explored. The kids should have fun playing hide-n-seek but be warned that you can reach the second level of the castle from the grounds. When you step through the window of the second floor, you'll be on a small but walkable platform about 8 feet from the hard ground below. There are footpaths around so you can make this the beginning or end to an adventure. Parking is on the street (there is no car park). Nice things nearby in the town to see as well.
  • Lovely castle and grounds. It's a shame it isn't more widely advertised or manned. We had a lovely couple of hours here in the sun. We read all the boards and explored the castle. It would be really great if there was someone to ask as we did have a few questions about the site. Some nearby toilets would be nice as well as a small area to park for the castle rather than in front of residents houses.
  • In a small park in middle of village. Notice boards fir information. Free to walk about the ruins. Worth a quick visit.
  • Cute little castle ruin in a beautiful village. Parking is free but not much of it due to its central location
