Have visited Beaupre Castle 2 or 3 times. It is a very interesting fortified manor house in an out of the way location so is never going to be overrun with visitors to say the least. There is a fair bit to see and enjoy...More

A bit of a ruin, but plenty to explore. Numerous information plaques to help get a sense of the history of the place. Visited twice and been the only visitors on both occasions, worth the short walk across a couple of fields to get there.

Only a small, lovely trek required to get to this incredible hidden gem. I cannot emphasise how wonderful this castle is, especially the carved Renaissance porch. Loved it.
