This castle is well located for views from the outside and a walk around the nearby countryside. This time I didn't go in, but I know from before it certainly has a haunted feel and that one of the towers in particular experiences lots of ghostly activity! This time we sat outside and had a picnic in the shadows of... More

An unfinished building project! Because the money ran out in the Tudor period, quite a lot of the older defensive castle remains, so you get the ruin of an Elizabethan mansion built on a grand scale side by side with original gate house and walls designed to keep the neighbours out! Very good audio tour guides you round the site... More

Very nice day out. Was full of expectations and these were fulfilled. We had a problem finding the castle at first and a lot of other visitors did not know where to go. However once we drove through 'the woods' .... there it was in its all beauty. I have to be honest and say that I was perhaps expecting... More

Loved this. We've been 'doing' castles this summer and this is up there. Fantastic location, excellent audio guides and fascinating site.

Tudor history plus more recent additions to a defensive castle set in beautiful trees with lovely views across the valley. I'd go again for sure.

Spend a good few hours with the audio going around the castle in what had some interesting details so well worth going if you like castles

Second visit to this castle. We went on Thursday afternoon and the castle was nearly empty...just two or three other families around. This castle is more of a ruined stately home with some defensive towers. There are some fantastic views and lovely architecture to look at as well as some interesting and innovative gun slots. The guided commentary was very... More

We took our 2 daughters here. Found the place no problem and free parking! Nice little cafe for a quick ice cream. Toilet was a bit dodgy but perfectly use able. The head phone tour was very interesting and enjoyable. Our girls were a bit spooked but had a great day. Probably not worth a return visit as nothing will... More

Down some very narrow country roads, through a bit of forrest, you arrive at a free car park and an impressive castle front. We had a nice slow walk round dipping in and out of the audiotour. The ruins of the castle are interesting, atmospheric and beautiful. A very enjoyable couple of hours. Many of the 'rooms' don't have a... More
