Really enjoyed our visit here yesterday. So many things to do for all ages and all the staff were exceptionally helpful and really informative about the place.

Enjoyed a few hours at the Castle looking at the house decorated through the ages. The courtyard was set out as in Medieval times and was very interesting. We ate pottage for lunch and a very sweet (meant to be savoury) mince pie.

After a longer than anticipated walk up to the castle and a rejuvenating cuppa in the cafe, we went for a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of the Castle. It was officially closed during the week but at weekends they open for these tours and we...More

It's quite steep with a hairpin bend. Some of our group took the NT minibus up to the castle and back again. If you have difficulty walking up slopes, I suggest you take the minibus to visit the castle. The setting and the... More
