The entry fee of £4 is a little steep for such a small manor house, however I was delighted to visit somewhere that invites visitors to try out the beds and an assortment of period costumes rather than the "please don't touch" signs you usually...More

A beautiful castle/mansion, which we visited with friends with young children. 5 kids ranging from 4-8 and all of them loved exploring the grounds and the buildings. It was a misty and wet day which added to the atmospherics surroundings and well worth a visit.

Well it was closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, so we never got to take the tour. We did stop and take some photos. Not worth a side trip. And the one-lane roads leading to it are barely wide enough to fit one small car, so...More

It IS a ruin! OK, don't expect much cover! That said, it's a really lovely ruin! It's not the romantic, covered in Ivy sort, it was all cleared away! It's amazing though to see how much was crammed into such a small space! The ruins...More
