OK, so it's not, technically, a castle, but when you're six the distinction isn't really that important. There are enough remains left to spend a hour or so poking about and my son loved it. Where else can you get a ruined castle all to yourself on a Bank Holiday Sunday.
There are a couple of information boards and a leaflet available at the nearby 11th Century church (which is also well worth a visit), although the one with the picture of the house in its heyday has suffered from the weather over the winter.
Whilst the site is, largely speaking, level I can see it being a bit challenging after some rain, but it must be said there are no styles to cross and the path was well maintained.
Be aware there are no facilities at this property, but that is reflected in the entrance fee...free.
Close by is the 11th Century church and a disused railway viaduct.
