The castle overlooks the mere, which has a superb circular walk where wildlife is abundant. Super in spring / summer. Some amazing views during Winter too. Free parking is available right next to the mere, bring some wellies.

We spent an excellent half day at the Castle with our 8 and 10 years old grandchildren. It's a proper Castle and you can walk all around the top of the walls and, at the end, slide down a huge tubular slide to the inside...More
