We visited during the food festival. How great to see this historic castle still being used as the centre of the community hundreds of years on. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and plan to return to have another look at this historic site

As mentioned worth a visit. Managed to get some beautiful photos of the Blorenge mountain. Lovely gift shop even though fairly small. Lovely lady who provided some local information which I found very useful.

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.
