There is a 12th century tower with 13th century well preserved walls and a gatehouse on the site of 11th century earthwork defences, overlooking the sea. It was derelict by 1600, but although it was used during the Civil War it surrendered quickly to Parliamentary forces and survived undamaged. It was partially renovated during the 19th century when a house was built within the walls.

The house within the castle walls is available as a holiday let all year round. The old vaulted chapel is licensed for wedding ceremonies.
