Lovely old Castle ruins. You can walk around the castle which is flat would be fine for wheelchairs and pushchair users . Very pleasant and there is a lovely tea shop just on the road leading to it .

The castle is well worth a visit and as a bonus it is free. There is plenty of parking a few metres from the castle. The grounds are well presented and the castle is an excellent example of the period.
