  • Highly recommended place to visit. State rooms open at 12noon and definitely worth visiting. Dungeon and tower is good for children with dressing up clothing. Lots of outdoor space with lots of walking if desired. A lovely setting for a picnic when the weather is nice.
  • Wonderful national trust building, the castle itself does not take long to get round. The grounds and woods are great. Must say, the shuttle bus driver was amazing, accommodated our two young girls and helped calm down a upset little girl.
