The castle dated from 1266 when a licence to crennelate was granted. The fortified manor house was used until it was badly damaged by a fire in 1978 and it was then left to decay for 30 years.
The Landmark Trust has made repairs to the curtain walls and the moat and built modern accommodation within the ancient ruins which is now available for rent as holiday accomodation.
