The drive through the estate up to the car park gives a lovely introduction to the castle and sets the mood for a great visit.The castle is in incredible good shape and being very well maintained. I found the staff to be very knowledgeable and helpful. There are guided tours of the outside which run on the hour (meeting point by the portcullis). There were lots of young children visiting, and my impression was that they were very well entertained. Even though the gardens were closed due to the snow you could gain a great view from the stately rooms. The tea-rooms have seating outside in the courtyard - lovely atmosphere, especially if the sun comes out.
