An absolute gem, it was a privilege to enter such a unique building and wander around soaking up the atmosphere and history, Lots of people may not be able to appreciate what Castle Lodge offers, its not your typical tourist attraction.... it is special.

An amazing visit! A house which has lasted since he 13th century, with wonderful carvings in every room. I loved the fact that there is modern furniture in one or two of the rooms as this is a house that has been lived in continuously....More

Its a fabulous property and how privileged to have been able to look around. It is certainly worth the £3 entrance fee (and more). Thank you to the owner for sharing your house to the public.

Just across from the entrance to the Castle is The Lodge. Once a splendid medieval merchant's town house, the Lodge is now in need of serious money and TLC. The owner (?) seems to live in one room downstairs whilst he charges £3 pp to...More

A Tudor House that is virtually unchanged. It is privately owned and lived in, it is the owner that tells you about the house. Just ring the bell and he lets you in, the £3.00 charge is well worth it. The ceilings, paneling and walls...More

What an amazing place, steeped in history, and houses the largest collection of wood panelling in the word, well worth a visit to this beautiful location.

The Castle Lodge was largely empty, though there were two really beautiful authentic four-poster beds and some wonderful paintings. The real plus points for the lodge were the doors and wooden panelling, and the wonderful atmosphere. There was virtually no electric lighting adding to the...More
