Pretty location in sleepy village

Well worth a visit - the castle itself is free to visit and the surrounding village has a stream you can paddle in ( with ducks), pub and church

Such a delightful little castle in a lovely little village. The children enjoyed it very much. Such a pretty place. The children thoroughly enjoyed the stroll around the castle and having a look around. Well worth a little trip :)

This Castle is beautifully maintained . The whole village is very nice and has a cared for feel. There is no charge to visit the castle and it is always open. It has a proper moat - with lots of tadpoles in May

This is my favourite castle, set in a very tranquil and idyllic village next to a beautiful stream. Built in the 14th century by Sir John Delamare, it was remodelled late 16th century and damaged during the English Civil War. The castle is being looked after by the English Heritage, it's very well maintained and invites you to come and... More

Only small but very atmospheric. Right next to a stream and in the middle of a very pretty village. Free entry and just a great place to walk around.

Picturesque village, with a free car park up the hill, but the real treasure for me was the castle in the middle. Notable from afar as the towers rise above the local housing, it is set back and requires a short walk to attain. It's small, smaller for my guess than Caerlaverock, but shares with that place the same serenity... More

A pleasant little village - echoes of old England with the stream running through it, set in a hollow off the main road. At the centre is the castle itself, moated, ruined and the stuff of picture postcards. Well worth a detour if in the area as in the spring sunshine this unsung gem oozes atmosphere and tranquillity.

Very pleasantly surprised, what a beautiful, clean and tidy little village this is with a lovely, well kept English Heritage Castle in the centre. We had a good walk around then did a walk on some footpaths onto the Nunney estate where the horse trials are held. Our dogs loved it, several chances to have a dip in shallow streams,... More

Well worth a brief visit if you live nearby or are passing that way. This 14th Century Castle survived intact until the English Civil War when cannon fire brought down the main wall. The remaining walls remain a tribute to the constructors and it is situated in a very pretty village.
