We had pre booked due to COVID. Great staff member, friendly and informative. Small artist impressions of what each room would have looked like. Steep climb and stairs to main tower but worth the trek. We had a break from the rain so we’re able to enjoy the vast expanse of countryside you can see from up there. Free car park and riverside walk into town as well plus free download tour guide and audio guide.

A very small English heritage site but well organised and good procedures in place, it was a very wet day when we visited so probably didn’t get full experience. There is an audio which you can listen to on your phone which was interesting.

We had pre booked as per the website and arrived 15 mins early. The young man on the entrance could not have been more helpful. He was more than happy to let us in early and fully explained the Covid “ one way system “. He saw that we had a dog and pointed out a nearby walk. It was an added bonus as was a 35 min walk through fields and along the river. The castle is very interesting and worth a visit. Steep climb if you struggle to walk though. Lovely visit.

Was a lot smaller than expected so was a quick visit to the castle ruins and a longer walk around the surrounding area. Oneway system to walk the grounds with a few areas out of bounds due to falling walls? It was very quite and had to prebook tickets to enter. Not sure if it gets busier. There s as all shop and no toilets. The woodland walk goes around the side of the castle although eerily quite as very few birds or wildlife? A pleasant enough trip and good place for a picnic or you can also visit the local town.
