We really enjoyed our visit to the Castle and museum. Tapestry is a great example of community effort is worth seeing. Nice and educational for children.

If it had not been pouring with rain, our visit to this little museum would probably have gone better, as we could not enjoy the outside areas. The museum was admission free but we did leave a donation. Worth a visit.

Dear Kim, Only assistance dogs are permitted in the castle grounds and the museum. However Castle Meadows which is adjacent to the castle is dog friendly.
