    It's not hard to find but practically located within a farm. You have to make a ticket in farmer's House, which among other things also sells Lamb (!!!). There is very little parking lot and the Castle isn't much to look at but they enjoy great views.

  • Stunning views of the bay. Lovely little castle and very informative display of all the castles in the area.
  • Small castle but loads for the kids to explore still. Stunning views from the front of the castle over the estuary.
  • Lovely place to visit with stunning views for miles on a clear day
  • This is a small but interesting castle with a small exhibit about close by castles as well. When we went the toilet facilities were very new and wonderfully clean.
  • Interesting place. Lots to see and explore. Could do with a bit more info/ signage outside.
