“Castle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

A steep climb to the castle. The views were lovely and the sense of history was quite strong. A small castle but makes you aware of the battles that took place continually throughout the centuries

“A Quick walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

A cheap but interesting walk around the local castle ruins with a unique sound effect as you walk over the draw bridge.
The shop offered vending machine coffee its a shame there isn't more of a cafe at this sight because we went on a beautiful day with stunning views it would have been nice to sit ans relax with a lovely coffee taking in the surroundings

“A good castle but not very big.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

A very nice castle, enjoyed walking round, brilliant views of the surrounding countryside. However there isn't masses to see. I think if you have children it would be brilliant as there was a treasure hunt to do and also lots of open space for them to run around, play hide and seek etc.

“Nice castle”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

The views from the castle were beautiful and worth the walk - the castle itself was ok, we did not want to pay to walk an extra few metres!

“Beautiful and fascinating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

This was the last 'extra' place we popped into to make the most of our 3 day CADW explorer pass which we had already got more than full value out of. It was a great end to a lovely holiday - not as complete as some castles but lots still there and the information boards and the information leaflet handed out on arrival gave a really good feel for the the place as it once was. Beautiful views and peaceful. Also, the very friendly and helpful gentleman on the admission desk gave our kids (8 and 11) a quest to do which was very good - unlike most places, they each had different questions to answer and the answers were all on the boards around the castle - they enjoyed it and learnt a lot as well. The brand new visitor centre opened this year is excellent - quite small but a surprisingly nice addition to the castle considering that it's very modern in design.
