“Great Castle and grounds”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

I loved that you pay to get in at the gate of grounds and then you can tour the Castle , playground, lake, maze , Grotto. Don't miss the Grotto in the middle of the maze its great! Castle guide gave our children some games to help them along the tour. Price of the Castle is a lot but if you stay at the B and B it is included.

“Lovely!!!”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

This is a very lovely and quaint castle, it has a great lead into the main entrance and the rooms really are spectacular. The Christmas fayre was there and it was a nice addition and worth the £2 fee. We went on Sunday and all I would say is that it was super busy and at times we felt a little rushed looking at things

“Christmas Gifts Fair”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

We revisited the Christmas Gift Fair which was very good last year. Unfortunatley this year the
fair was lacking in the number of stall holders, I would have to say by 20%. The standard of
some of the stalls was also lacking that something special, inside the large marquee was very
dull and not a patch on last year. To sum it up this years fair was not up to scratch so if the
organizers what to attract better numbers and give the stall holders a fighting chance they need
to make some radical changes.
