My family and I have just come back from a weeks stay at the castle. We all had an amazing holiday, the staff are very welcoming and the atmosphere was lovely. The castle has a very talented chef and I would highly recommend trying there food

Loved it here, it is fantastic despite the day we visited being very wet. Stunning views of the beach from the top of the towers. Beautifully kept gardens and interesting rooms to explore. Tea room was a bonus and the staff were very friendly. Very photographic - perfect for weddings!

We visited the castle before spending the rest of the day on the beach. The staff were very welcoming and the aroma from the tea rooms was amazing. It was very inexpensive and we enjoyed a couple of hours mooching around the towers and the grounds with the kids, then basked up the sun on the lawn.

It is rare to visit a castle and have no information to tell you about the history of the castle. The only way you were going to get this here was to buy a guide book - something you read at the time and then never again. The entrance fee was £5 per adult, for a small castle I found... More

This castle looks better from the road where it's very imposing. Although there are some towers to climb and a dungeon to explore, we've been to castles which have been more impressive than this one was. However, there are very pleasant gardens and an excellent café which serves delicious cakes. The toilets could do with some updating. The towers have... More

Visited with my grandsons and enjoyed an hour in the castle. The grounds are beautiful and the cafe sells high standard food. There are lovely views once you have climbed the narrow, steep staircases but these are very precarious and definitely not suitable for the very young or less mobile people. Obviously not as big and grand as some castles... More

The castle is great for the whole family , went with my wife and 2 kids , we all loved it . Not a huge castle but enough to see, and the view of the beach from the tower is lovely. The kids can get dressed up in knights and princess and run around the castle to take some really... More
