“If you're into castle ruins, this is for you”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

If I'm honest there's not a lot to see here. We visited in the middle of a weekday and there was no one there and not really much information about the castle to be found.

Definetely worth a visit. We would return to this fascinating place. This is one of the best preserved Mediaeval buildings in the UK

“Nice to visit”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

Lovely to walk around and free! Open aired walk near a pub and in open countryside next to a river. It didn't take long to go around but interesting to see. Forms part of the three castles group together with white castle and Grosmont castle.

“Beautiful Ruins”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

Not really a place to visit if it's raining! Beautiful nonetheless. You could easily spend an hour or two walking around and admiring it.
