Serene Castle on high ground Apr 29, 2014
This Castle was beautiful. Small area to cover, well kept and peaceful. I visited on a day when it was sunny, there were no children about and very few other visitors and it was so lovely. There are several visitor boards posted around with information which was pretty interesting and as castles go, it was very well preserved.

Like alot of other castles it is not really suitable for wheelchair users or people who are not very mobile due to the steps and uneven grounds and has steps at the entrance. Dogs are allowed although they have to be kept on short leads and there are several warning signs about the site which should be heeded. There was one tower which I did not venture up which actually takes you up to the roof. The stairs leading up there were extremely steep, narrow and dark. To help with the walk up them there is a rope. The other stairs around the site are fine though.

There is a small gift shop and cafe along with toilets. The staff in the shop were pleasant and nice to chat to. The shop prices were ok, though we didn't go into the cafe so not sure what they had to offer. If the weather is nice then definitely try to visit, if the weather is raining, try to be careful and make sure you put on decent walking shoes as it was muddy even today and it was gorgeous!

They do hold events at the castle on set days which look like they could be fun.
