  • Brilliant experience visiting this castle and the wonderful gardens. The gardens are amazing. The castle is fantastic. The video shows are informative and really add to the positive experience. My friend and I had a brilliant day. We had a cream tea him at there and thus was also excellent. Well worth a day out there. We could have spent even more time there than we did and hopefully will go back soon.
  • A great event held in the castle grounds. Felt like it was a bit quiet but for the first year running it wasn't too bad. Great ideas happening and I wish it to return next year. Made a lovely backdrop to some fantasy photos, just wish we could have gotten in almost the entrance way for more.
  • Brilliant castle to visit. Really beautiful and interesting history. The grounds are lovely too and the adventure playground. The children really enjoyed it. Restaurant served excellent food for lunch too.
  • Excellent tour, grounds were beautiful. Very interesting. Would go back for another visit. Gardens and pheasants kept my interest. Great gift shop and cafe. Do not miss the opportunity to visit!
  • Excellent visit. Started with a tour guide explaining 1000 plus years of history in the area. The guide was superb, Rosalind or similar name. Made the tour with her enthusiasm and historical detail. Then a self run visit from dungeons and rooms plus the ruins and gardens. Good facilities and restaurant. Well worth a visit.
