  • Had a lovely time there. The surrounding are very serene, very pretty and clean. Don't expect a full polished castle, but the tour shows the experience of a family doing their best to keep the place.....  more

  • Fantastic castle! Passed through this castle on one of our school hikes. Was closed for the day but went in as far as the tea room; ate some wonderful cakes. Definitely coming back here for a proper tour!
  • Very interesting. It as a long varied history. It is only open on certain days so you need to book but it is worth it.
