I visited with my 60-year-old mother and 2-year-old daughter, both of whom had trouble climbing the multitude of stairs inside the castle. Whilst old buildings often do present access issues for older people and toddlers, I felt the stairs were so steep and there were so many of them that perhaps a warning could have been given on the brochure or at the entrance that maybe not everyone would manage the stairs. In fact, it really wasn't an appropriate destination for a toddler at all - I had thought that my daughter would like to see a castle, but she was thoroughly bored and it was a bit of a nightmare to get her to stand behind the rope / stop touching things / etc.
I thought the entry fee was a little expensive for how long the visit lasted and how much there was to see, being six quid each for adults (although we weren't charged for our toddler).
Also, we had researched the opening hours prior to our visit on the website and saw that it was open afternoons only ... then arrived at the castle to find that the opening hours displayed indicated that it had been open all day which was disappointing when a morning visit would have suited us a better ... then as we came to the end of our visit, we were promptly escorted outside and the door locked behind us, an hour earlier than the advertised closing time! So, maybe call to check opening times before you go?!
All that being said, I found the history of the castle very interesting and I would have appreciated having a bit longer to look around and read things properly.
