“nice surroundings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Shame that history is being destroyed by some people!
Lots needs to be done to restore this potential beauty!
Entrance fee recommended to bring in some revenue to help this poor castle.
Surrounding areas lush, great views...

“Great sense of history - with views to match!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

No admission price, no exhibits, but great fun to prowl! The signs for restrooms are a bit misleading. Head for the garden and playground area just off the street.

“A ruined castle!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

The castle is now in a serious state of disrepair and apart from mowed lawns little else appears done. Signs have been defaced to almost unreadable. Could be better if some more TLC was given to areas where defacing has been done.
