Difficult to find the actual castle! I remember visiting here as a child. A lovely summer's day and I was in the area. Grounds are in good condition and obviously very popular with families. I really wanted to find the old castle but it was not signposted and I could not find it. I ended up asking a dog walker... More

I've grown up coming here so have seen lots of changes (all for the better). This is a fantastic place to walk the dog, let the children run through the woods and streams, sit for a picnic, play ball, play in the park, look at the old house/ museum or sit and have a coffee and some fresh air. I... More

Other reviewers have made big play of the estate at the expense of the house/museum. This is a bit hard. For sure, it is probably not for kids (and dogs) but it is a real attempt to make something of an interesting story on what is surely a small budget. I went on an (infrequent) guided tour with the curator.... More

Lucky with the weather, it was a beautiful sunny day and we quickly warmed up from walking through the woods. As soon as we got in the car park I knew it's gonna be something I will want to go back to. All that my eyes could see was green! Full of green grass, trees, everything! Beautiful, with a nice...

We went on a sunny Sunday morning, arriving just before 10AM and we were lucky to get a car parking space, there were queues to get in shortly after! It is a massive open space, perfect for barbecues and picnics. There is a very large play area/ adventure playground catering for all ages, toilets and a cafe. There were bouncy... More

And it was the best decision ever!!! The whole place is amazing. Great for picnics,... More

There is a big car park and you can park here free of charge. The castle and the area are very nice, there is lot of space for kids to play and dogs to run around.There are some beautiful trees in the park and castle itself and the Museum are worth visiting! I was rather disappointed with the toilet facilities,... More
