Sadly there will be no refreshments on site, but the village has shops and a tea room open for takeaways.
Dogs are welcome
We welcome well behaved dogs, but please keep them on short leads and clear up after them. There are some lovely walks around the garden that everyone including your four legged friends will enjoy. Please note we have free range chickens around the garden, so please be aware!
Being built on a hill, disabled access to the castle is very limited, there are a number of tarmac paths, however they are mostly very steep to access, whilst we do our best to ensure we can provide some disabled parking this is very limited and is at the bottom of the drive – it does not take you up to the main house. The same applies to pushchairs, whilst you can (and I have) push a pushchair all the way around the garden, the paths aren’t really pushchair friendly although people do manage especially with the hardier types of pushchair.
We have had a good spell of dry weather so will be hopeful to have parking in the cow field at the front of the house – this is through the main gates. If this changes parking will be in the village. Alternatively if you don’t want to park in a field please park in the village and walk up.
