Couldn't see a tower from the road, but decided to pop in anyway. We were the only people there & had it all to ourselves. Lots of info provided and great views from the top of the tower.

Paid a visit and was extremely impressed with the tower and the grounds. A bonus was meeting the owner, a very nice gentleman who filled us in with some additional history. Well worth a visit and our Beagle enjoyed the climb to the top.

Charmingly presented, giving wonderful impression of the use of the once numerous towers, as refuge from raiders, and places to hold hostages. Views from top. Privately owned and managed. Fully worth the honesty box £2 entry. And deserving of support. Delightful place for a picnic.

Preston Tower is a lovely peaceful location with a well laid out garden. I have visited this site many times and it is particularly beautiful in the autumn when the flowers are in full bloom. My daughter had Wedding photos taken here.
