The owners are doing their best to keep the place up - it was right on our doorstep at the Wilton Court hotel and had to see it on one of the few open days. lovely gardens, plenty of roses clinging to the bare walls - lovely setting close to the river Wye

Don't miss this out on your itinerary when visiting Ross on Wye. It is the most magical garden of roses set amidst the red-walled twelfth century castle. There are any number of places to sit and enjoy the beautiful vistas and watch the numerous birds. Make sure you look for the young kestrels( an unprecedented number of five young!) and... More

I went here during a trip to Devon. While I was hiking, I noticed a castle poking through the trees in the distance and when I found it I was amazed. Its like a little slice of heaven with fantastic gardens and the house built into the ruins of the castle. Awesome.

This is the ruins of a former Marcher castle and Tudor manor house, as well as a private home. The day we went we were the only visitors, so it felt like we were privileged guests. We really enjoyed our potter round the castle and the lovely gardens, full of spring flowers, followed by an invitation to look over the... More

Well I never knew it was here! What a treat to find such a wonderful place. It was nice to be greeted by the owner who told us about the history of the castle. Lush grounds and gardens and lovely owners.

If like me you like anything olde and Castle shaped, then you will enjoy a stole round this olde ruin. Plenty to see with views of the River Wye. Make sure you pick a nice day ENJOY DONE

Lovely gardens, very friendly owners and good tea and cake. We had a good walk around and then sat quietly whilst kids explored.

I have lived within 15 minutes of Wilton Castle for 15 years, but never visited before. I was very pleasantly surprised. It was a lovely place to spend an afternoon and have a cup of tea. I'm not really sure what it really is: restoration project, ancient monument or a garden. It doesn't really matter as it is all of... More

This was a novel use of an old ruined castle. An impressive garden and very friendly owners. A cup of tea or coffee was included in the entrance fee.

A really tranquil spot, a little gem hidden away and yet ridiculously close to a very busy roundabout! The castle is only open 2 afternoons a week, as it is privately owned, but it is really worth seeing. The ruins are quite impressive, and the current owners are doing an amazing job of restoration. We enjoyed a peaceful walk around... More
