Amazing place - rich with history. We felt privileged to stay here. Fantastic experience overall. World’s largest collection of battle-fired flintlock pistols dating back to pre-American Revolutionary War. Eisenhower stayed here four times - once during his presidency. High tea & ghosts too!

Pity it was raining as didn't get chance to look round the beautiful gardens or see the view out to sea. However looking round the castle was both interesting and worth the visit. Take the guided visit. The guide Gemma was informative and welcoming. Would...More
