Dean Castle Country Park reviews
Very interesting trip round the old castle with a number of different exhibits to see. Great surrounding area which was very busy with dog walkers.

The car park is ok size but can get really busy at lunch time. The castle is closed for refurbishment but it is due to reopen on the 1 of April 2023. The paths round the park are well looked after. They are a bit muddy in places but that more to do with the weather. There is 3 different walking routes you can choose from. All are very easy with only minor hills to walk up. The play park is quite small and has the usual swings,shoots,one person trampoline etc. The rural life centre is beside the park and the toilets are in here as well. Also in the centre is information about how they farm the land and environmental issues. There is a few animals you can see from goats/pigs/sheep/deer's. There is a cafe across from the car park and the price's are quite reasonable. You can also find other toilets here.
What a beautiful place. Sadly, the kids park was out of bounds when we visited, but there was still plenty to keep us interested. I'm on crutches, and really had to walk a lot (too much actually) after parking the car. It would be useful if we could maybe hire disability scooters? The disabled toilet was impressive, with a hoist & shower, and changing table for larger kids/adults. The wee cafe is quite reasonably priced which we appreciated. We'd definitely recommend a visit, esp on a dry day! Take some bird seed, or grapes for ducks. ❤
