Please allow at least twenty minutes to get from the car park to the hemmel. We recommend you get there at least fifteen minutes before the advertised tour to give you time to purchase tickets and to attend a brief but compulsory safety briefing before entering the cattle park.

The hemmel is full of interesting storyboards detailing the history of both the cattle and the castle as well as a small quirky gift shop.

It is usually possible to visit the Wild Cattle out of season. We can also accommodate special interest groups who would like to access the cattle after the park has closed for the day or out of season. This can only be done by prior arrangement and at the discretion of the Warden. Phone Ellie at 01668 215250 to check availability and visitors fees.

We can also accommodate visitors with mobility issues by prior arrangement only and at the discretion of the Warden. Please allow a minimum of at least 24 hours notice. Please phone Ellie at 01668 215250.
