I was a little underwhelmed on the approach, as it resembles a hall not a castle. Once inside though, I was very impressed! The Castle has a very unusual tradition - upon the first visit of any "peer of the realm", they must donate a horseshoe to the Lord of the Manor. These horseshoes are displayed on the walls inside - over 200 horseshoes dating from 1470 to modern day. Entrance is free and you are permitted to take photographs.
