Castle Tours & Guided Archaeological Estate Walks
We welcome all our guests to enjoy the castle to it’s fullest by wandering around and making themselves at home. But if you would like to find out more about the history of the building and the Cooper family the owner, Charles Cooper, conducts occasional tours of the castle and gardens covering the history of the castle and the Cooper family.
Archaeological Estate Tours
We are delighted to have Auriel Robinson of Seatrails conduct a guided walk of the estate in conjunction with the castle tour. There are an amazing number of sites to see on the grounds which you would not notice without the expert eye of Auriel a qualified archaeologist, including a Ha, Ha and a motte. Auriel gives an overview of the history of the castle through the ages back to ancient times.
