History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
It was Roger Vaughan who rebuilt the Norman castle, over the years 1585 - 1601. One of the most notable features of the castle exterior are the steep, stepped gables, a vestige of Dutch style.
The interior of the castle features some very fine plasterwork ceilings and oak panelled chambers. The castle stands in 8 acres of gardens, featuring yew hedges, and one of the largest Ginkgo Bolioba trees in England, plus a walled kitchen garden.
Beside the castle is the Norman parish church, which is well worth a visit to see the Smallman monument of 1633.
The castle is open for guided tours on specified days during the Summer months.
