Alison the castles attendant was a great source of information and was very engaging. The castle was a superb visit with detailed information at each pivotal stop . An amazing snapshot of history and the stories of love, conspiracy and death.

The location is easy to find, car parking is huge difficult though. Helpful advice at the ticket desk, freedom to explore the towers, very well preserved decorated ceiling and painted plasterwork. Take a walk up the winding staircases in each tower to walk around the...More

One tower was closed when we visited, due to bats on the floor! However, it didn't detract from the visit and the smartly dressed staff member (from Colwyn Bay - hello from Wales!) was friendly and helpful. £5 per adult. Not as big as Elcho...More

Had a lovely day visit here. Unspoilt and wonderfully full of history. Easy to access from ring road.

We found this interesting and historical castle by accident. We were delighted with the well cared for structure, tidy grounds, picnic tables, and accessible toilets.

The UK doesn't know the existence of motorhome. No parking, no signs. Historical places with no parking, no advises in the explorer pass sheet. Driving for miles for nothing. Tourism in the UK is quite a nightmare
