What a place, there's something here from everywhere, very interesting place. Very eerie too especially in the torture chamber. The staff are really helpful and answer any questions you have it's well worth a visit. For the braver of us they do ghost hunting stays...More

This has to be one of the best Castles I have ever visited. It has not been "spruced" up or sanitised. The owners have done a remarkable job of restoring their home and sharing it with the public. As we walked around the gardens we...More
