The formal gardens are really amazing, and there are also beautiful areas of woodland & immense trees to explore. I felt it was worth the rather steep entrance fee of £10 each (adult). However, I felt that more information on or access to the castle itself was a glaring omission. I understand the castle is privately owned & lived in - fair enough - but it is a vast building altogether, & unlikely that the oldest tower section is actually occupied? Even some information boards about the buildings would have been welcome. And the huge area of woodland which you drive through the edge of on the way in is so beautiful, we were left wondering why visitors are not encouraged to go into this area. Again, information would have been useful - are you actually allowed to walk in this area, or is it all private? We felt this was very much a private estate, which allows access to the 'plebs' to certain areas, but it did not have a particularly welcome feel. Having said all that, the gardens themselves are a lovely place to visit.

Stunning and beautiful. This time of year the colours are awesome and the setting is just amazing. Nothing quite like it anywhere else.

Nice walk around, nice gardens. Seen a flock of peacocks roaming the grounds. Took us roughly 2 hours to walk around. The cost for an adult is just a bit pricy.

Castle is closed with scaffolds around the outside and inside.looks like long term work. But there are some great spots by the river. Just a short walk.
