    The 14th century Gatehouse looms large on the flat Lincolnshire landscape and with three floors and a number of corridors it's an interesting building to check out. However there are some uneven floor...  more »

  • Absolutely love this place and cannot wait to go again!!! Would highly recommend people to go there you won't be disappointed. When we went I thought it was just going to be ruins so was really surprised when I found out you could walk around inside the gate house, it has big fire places and lots of little corridors to explore the kids thought it was great. Activities for the kids to do inside too.
  • Impressive gatehouse well worth seeing, but the site itself is very small so don't plan on spending a full day here. Also the picnic area was really messy.
  • Not a lot off it but worth a visit. A nice site with a history to tell. Friendly staff. Part of site is accessed through uneven steps in places, some internal steps don't have handrails. A lovely place none the less. There is a picnic site outside the enterence. Some fabulous stonework on the gatehouse.
  • Bit pricey but good stock
  • Very nice and unusual place.
