Very interesting and historic place to visit. Parking is a short distance away and access is available to wheelchair-users though there are some sloping surfaces. There is a visitor centre and disabled toilets and unaccompanied children are not allowed.

I really loved this little castle, steeped in history with a little quiz ideal for our 5 yr old to keep her interested despite the rain. Friendly staff in gift shop. Nice memories. Steep steps to tower consistent with old ruins.
