The castle ruins are stunning. The gardens are beautifully kept and just coming into bloom. The view from the castle was spectacular and the fine weather was a bonus. Fascinating history and excellent staff.

We had a beautiful day. Grandparents, parents, children aged 4,5 & 6 and the dog. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Lydia, our guide really brought the history to life. Also genuinely dog friendly. Looking forward to the siege later in the year. Thanks. Sue C
