We went for a Christmas experience with the children and to see the place lit up but we will definitely go back in the summer. The outdoor space is beautiful, play areas great for kids and they loved seeing the animals top, then the actual house was really beautiful and meeting Father Christmas was just the cherry on the top. We had such a lovely day and created some really special memories, the food was fairly expensive maybe next time we'd take some of our own snacks but for a Christmas treat I'm very glad we did it and can't wait to visit again soon!

Wonderful looking castle, with a lot of history and beautiful grounds, with a lovely secret garden. You need to join the tour to see all of it but meant waiting 2 1/2 hours for that. We looked around the bottom part and it was fascinating but very short, hence 4 stars. The farm shop is excellent and has so much there, as do the other places next to it. A lovely day out and would recommend a visit.

A fabulous place to visit. If you get Dave as your guide you've hit the jackpot he's fantastic, passionate, funny and caring. The walled garden is a must if you have small children, plenty of space to play and so many fab animals to get to know. The staff and the facilities are fantastic. Highly recommend you visit

Lovely Castle and the rooms are all interesting. You do need to take one of the guided tours though to be able to gain access to all floors and really discover the history of this castle. The guides also bring the castle to life for you with their stories. Only allowed photos of the outside, interior photography is banned (even when not using any flash), therefore cannot give them a higher review mark, as I personally believe once you pay to go inside, you should have the right to take photos.
