We visited here as one of our adventure days out, it is a very beautiful place but does not take very long to explore, a little more history about the place could be displayed but it was worth visiting

Signage is good to get to this stately castle. I suspect the weather had much to do with our brilliant day. The grilled cheese in the shop was perfect and topped off with ice cream w/ flake. The castle was interesting as castles are, but...More

Lovely place for a walk! The cave is really cool as well - a little bit scary and so dark so make sure you take a torch! Lovely castle!
