Stop by today and I was very impressed. The owner is very welcoming and she knows a lot about the history of the area. I still just can’t wrap my head around the fact that she lives inside this mediaeval castle. One of the coolest...More

Very interesting place with a very interesting history, although closed when we were there, Rebecca, the owner welcomed us in to the first floor and told us a bit of the history.

As a historical landmark it needs attention. This castle is directly related to Henry VIII as it was the home of the Boleyn family at one stage.It would be nice to be able to explore further but Health & Safety must be taken into account.
