I have been here several times since moving to the North East and I absolutely adore it. It is good value for money and we've taken a lot of visitors with us to see the castle. As it has been privately owned and well looked after there is a lot to see. The main buildings are a bit more like Osborne House (Isle of Wight) rather than your classic castle, because it was lived in for so long but the exhibits are plentiful and there is a lot of interesting information about them. The cafe is a little expensive but average compared to National Trust sites and the food is very nice. There have been a few art exhibitions on when we've been before which is always interesting. The beach surrounding the castle is gorgeous and it makes a fantastic day out. The scenary is lovely!
