"Two castles for the price of one…"
The ruins of the 13th century castle were very exciting with lots of maze-like rooms and cellars (no roof though, and not very easily negotiated with a pushchair). The 'Small Castle' has alot of stone steps, but for an active 7 year old, and reasonably robust parents, this too was fun to run around in and hide in all the mysterious rooms. Little decor or furnishings (fine if you're a small boy, but less interesting for Mum who loves the interior of Chatsworth). Best fun of all though, was the English Heritage Time Traveller activity - an hour of trying to knock down a wooden castle and peg people with miniature trebuchets and wooden balls.
