  • The castle is kind of ruined, and you can't get in it. but what i really enjoyed is the view which was really incredible, and the road you have to walk to get to the castle is just amazing in everythi...  more »

  • A worthwhile visit. Best to go when its dry as the perimeter footpaths and field areas can be quite boggy. Good visitor centre, lots of history. Some feral local children doing wheelies and climbing on the walls despite adequate signage, otherwise I pleasant day out.
  • Lovely place to visit for a couple of hours out, especially if the weather is nice. There is a lovely little walk through the woods and i great little visitors center with very polite staff.
  • The visitors centre is situated in the small car park in the castle grounds. The Castle grounds are a peaceful clean open space full of wildlife and perfect for dog walks. Amongst the grounds are information boards telling you about the history of the castle and how it looked back in its hey day. The Castle is at the top of the hill and on some days is open to roam inside. There ain't really much of the building left of any interest but from the site you get 360° of the whole of Stafford.
  • In the perfect location between Penzance and Sterling if you want to meet up halfway to pick up a kayak. The car park had plenty of space to examine the kayak before purchase, and nice clean toilets for a decent bowel evacuation ahead of the long trip back to Cornwall.
  • Very muddy at this time of year. Some vandalism if site is on-going of course but well worth a visit. Bring your binoculars or telescope for views.
