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.

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

The Lord and Lady who own the castle are great to chat to and have done an amazing job restoring the place! There are lovely rose beds and well tended gardens along with tea, coffee and cake available plus a guided tour if you want it. Although it is not open all the time it is open quite frequently on...

An inspiring couple have made this castle their home. It is such a special place to visit and a must if in the area, if you show a great interest for restoration you will get to see inside the house and the work the home owners have done it is truly a labour of love. With the price of your... More

The old red ruined walls make such a fantastic contrast to the beautiful well-tended gardens. This castle is not open all the time and you will want to visit the website here: http://www.wiltoncastle.eclipse.co.uk/ to avoid disappointment Certain historical details are explained by small plaques as you stroll round the walls & moat If it wasn't for this it would be...
