The castle stands in a very well kept park area but the route to it, like many other castles, is a steep walk. We were a family, my husband and I, our daughter and her husband and son aged 2 years. We were told at the ticket office that we could not take the child's buggy into the castle which we didn't mind as we were ale to leave it in the ticket office hall for safety. However, once inside we realised why the buggy couldn't come with us. The castle although in excellent condition is not at all suitable fir those with young children. There are many steps, in narrow walkways, which are difficult to navigate for adults alone, and nearly impossible when leading or carrying a young child. I would very much recommend seeing this castle but wait until any children are at least 5 years old.
