Visited castle today. Beautiful gardens and notable difference in the temperature between the walled garden and the main garden explained why so many flowers were still blooming. Castle rooms very attractive and guides friendly and informative. Plenty of parking excellent value for money.

Good historic castle. All rooms had good information sheets available which told the story of the artefacts on show. Gardens are well kept. The water garden is special. Well worth a visit.

the garden in august was awesome. Almost all the plants were flowering. It was an explosion of colours. The visit to the castle is good enought. You can see how it is posible nowadays to live in a castle in a comfortable way

The Castle and grounds were lovely. Castle quite intimate I thought as rooms much smaller than normal castles. Cosy feel to it. Gardens were very pretty and I am sure on a dry day you could spend a little more time in them wandering around...More

The castle still looks fantastic. The tour gives a good picture of life in the castle through the ages. The huge garden also looks beautiful. During our visit there was also a demonstration with falcons and a hawk. This demonstration gives a good picture of...More

On site is a good option and you should not have a problem with it being overly busy.
