Great place for a picnic on a fine day. Loads of room for the kids to run and play as the hill has a large flat field at the top. Worth going up the castle itself as the view from the top is amazing.

We walked to Castle hill from Holme valley campsite, it was a tough walk mostly uphill or that's how it felt. Got lost several times but that's all part of the fun. Well worth all the effort though. More of a tower than a castle,...More
