Great place to spend the day. Stunning scenery & there are fantastic walks around the country park. The castle itself is a truly beautiful building with so much history. Will definitely go back when the weather is a bit warmer.

Depending on the time of year. During the summer it is open longer. The best way to find out is to check the NTS website for more information. Hope this helps.
