An interesting national trust property. You can wander from room to room with few barriers. Guided tour informative and entertaining. Had lunch in the tearoom freshly made sandwiches and home baking. Beautiful walled gardens. Didn't visit rest of the grounds as it was raining

I don't think so and the website will clarify. You approach the front entrance on LHS of castle and go past it to the gate in the wall. There is a suggested donation box. Enjoy!
