Did not bother to enter this site as they wanted £7 for a maximum of three hours to visit this venue, which we thought was overpriced.

Stepping through solid doors we were greeted by Mrs Gordon who gave an introductory talk as we enjoyed coffee and biscuits. Wonderful grounds and romantic ruins, Norman towers and gatehouse. Attractive gardens to explore and appreciate. Well worth a visit!

I went with 3 adults 2 children. The children got to try on the helmets and explore the grounds . We were allowed an apple by the Gardner from the orchard . Sunny day so walking around the grounds was more enjoyable
