Visited while staying locally at a cottage, impressive castle and country park, covers quite a large area so there is a lot of walking involved, will visit again when back in the area.

We planned a return visit but could get no further than the cafe & shop. We found that the car park including disabled spaces was adjacent to the retail area! There was no shuttle service and unable to manage the walk we left.

Depending on the time of year. During the summer it is open longer. The best way to find out is to check the NTS website for more information. Hope this helps.
