Visited here on Tuesday, only to find its only open weekends, I recently brought my English heritage membership, but nothings ever open, it's disgusting. I was not told this when signing up that you close everything in the winter. I work weekends so can't go. Any excuse to close I think.

The site was closed when we visited on a weekday in late November, but using our OS map we followed public footpaths which lead down the drive and enabled us to do a circular tour. The first view of the castle seen through the autumn trees was memorable. After admiring the gatehouse and curtain wall we followed an old bridle... More

A hidden gem! A well preserved castle with an interesting and checkered history- worth dodging the pheasants for!

Great castle, I don't normally like audio guides but actually used this one. Very atmospheric and a beautiful setting. We arrived shortly after opening on a Saturday and had the castle pretty much to ourselves. Will definitely return.

What made this attraction interesting is it is situated in the middle of a forest. A car is recommended otherwise from the bus stop, it is indeed a very long walk. The scenery around you takes all the tiredness away. It's exhilarating to see if you're a nature lover. As me and my husband went at holloween period, we've also... More

Visited the castle with a friend and my son, (not buggy friendly) so carried by baby in a baby carrier. You get the option to listen to whats what number by number as it moves you around, we found this long winded and went on too much, which we could see others feeling too. It was a nice visit and...

Tucked away in a secluded valley the ruins of Berry Pomeroy Castle are well worth a visit, there is a lot to explore and the audio guided tour is fantastic. Obviously being a castle it's not all flat, although most of it is accessible, and being a ruin there is no roof!
