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.

A lovely well contained Castle, ideal for scrabbling over. Visited recently & was here as the sun set on the day, amazing beautiful. If you are passing well worth stopping off, likely not worth a long trip to see. Set in a lovely village.

I had never heard of Nunney Castle until a friend told me about it. If you have half an hour to spare its worth the detour if you are near Frome. The Castle is actually in the village of Nunney. It is a ruin but still quite impressive surrounded by its own water filled moat. It is free to walk... More

The building is only a shell now, but it is well worth a visit. It soars above you and has a magical quality

The town is really more like a Hamlet. It is very small and retains much of its Medieval history. One can almost feel transported back in time. The castle is still very beautiful even though it no longer has a roof, but a drawbridge and moat surround it. We loved visiting the town of Nunney and Church across the road.... More
