Beautiful castle and scenery. Enjoyed the lovely walks and wildlife. The price was reasonable if you plan to visit 2 or 3 times a year. However, I felt that a family ticket for the day only at £25.00 would encourage more people through the gates....More

They say it is the "prettiest castle" but for £25 each (for adults), one is entitled to and does expect a bit more. There is a long walk from the entrance to the castle, and it's £1 if you want to take the "train". The...More
