We came to this castle as we fancied a day out and it is lovely. The walk down from the car park takes a couple of minutes and is not steep as some reviews say. We loved the castle from going right to the top of the roof to seeing where they kept the prisoners to all the stair cases we went up and down. Our two children who are 9 and 5 loved it as well and they even got to run around the lawn as we were taking in the sites as we were there three hours. Will definitely return soon.

We were staying at the hotel and visited the heritage centre unsure of what to expect we were pleasantly surprised. The site is gorgeous and to be able to view such well preserved buildings and exhibit was really fascinating. We learnt so much about the mill we had no idea before we came. There is loads of informative boards and films to see as well as the exhibits themselves. The staff were all super helpful and informative about the site and history. If your in the area and considering visit.
