Perfect place for any age or party size. Perfect for little ones with a little queue free theme park. Inside the castle is crazy I assume the owner is more than a little eccentric. Very odd collection of history inside. Beautiful gardens, well kept and reasonably priced. Staff were amazing.

I visited with friends and our children ranging from 2 -8. The weather was fantastic which is important for a good day as most of the activities are outside. The entrance fee covers all of the rides and activities in the park . This is perfect as the kids were able to go on as many rides as they liked.... More

Visited here with family, was more appropriate for younger children under 10, there are a few little rides but not as many as I was expecting after reading other reviews. The food is overpriced for what you get (toastie of sandwiches) so suggest taking your own picnic. The staff at cafe were quite rude and unhelpful! Adults should not have... More

Decided to go and look around this castle but we didn't want to go to the amusements. We asked if we could just look round but you can't...you have to pay for the whole lot...it's a shame they can't offer a price just for a castle visit and another for the amusements...the info we read didn't make it clear... Saying... More

A day out for half term with my partner and 2 children aged 14 and 11. We loved the castle, I was amazed to see both children transfixed by the model railway, I didn't know they would find that interesting! The displays of household equipment are well put together, and the antique arcade games that are all over the castle... More

What a lovely place! Shame we had to queue to get through the castle. The grounds were delightful and nicely decorated for Halloween. Great rides, especially the toboggan. So much to see and do on the paths in between the rides. Great oversized musical instruments to play!

Fairly reasonable price wise, older children enjoyed the attractions and embraced the rides targeted for younger ones. Toboggan ride big hit with all & mini golf was good fun for all. Good selection of food and drinks to keep the hungry moans at bay. Very enjoyable day had by all.
