Walked the dog around the castle recently and it must be said the heritage trust along with their friends have really made this place a pleasure to visit. The fields were looked after and upkeep is great. Well worth a visit on a nice day.

We were lucky to walk to the castle on an open Sunday, so we enjoyed a cup of tea and a homemade cake in the sunshine outside the old farmhouse. The people from the Heritage Society were very friendly and informative. This is a lovely...More
