“Catch the tour”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

My husband and I caught up about 5 minutes into the tour. The guide(wish I knew his name)
added so much history and anecdotes to the experience I feel much would have been unappreciated if we had just looked around ourselves. How else would we have known there is a weather system in the pool area and heard what a practical joker the castle owner was?
The gardens look unkempt, but the castle itself was intriguing.
As an aside, we saw a marriage proposal from the balcony the day we were there, couldn't hear a thing but it looked very romantic and was quite obvious she said yes!

“Very interesting place to visit.”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

Staff was super friendly and very knowledgeable of the castle. The grounds were simply beautiful and well kept. Unfortunately it was raining the day we went but still had a great time. Well worth the money and would go back if in the area.

“Castles Rock!! ”
Reviewed 21 January 2014 via mobile

Actually went my first time to this castle in July 2011. It is the first castle I visited in the United States although I was born here and lived here my whole life. It was just me am my mother touring and we ended up touring along with some high school kids who were given a narrated your. I learned so much and enjoyed every area of the castle we experienced. If you love old things and history it's a great place to visit.
