Very unusual to find a caste of "French style" design in the middle of a Somerset village. Worth a short visit.

Went to Nunney to photograph a Guard House and as I was walking back to the car I saw two turrets poking up into the sky so found our way round to it and what an amazing find of 13th Century architecture.

Great little castle, smack bang in the middle of a pretty picturesque little village. Parking is not an issue and there are at least 2 eateries with in 100yrds of the castle. We ate at the George, great food!

I love castles, and this picturesque little castle has its own fish filled moat. I loved 'discovering' Nunney castle peeping out from behind the village houses next to a sweet meandering stream. There are a couple of benches next to the stream next to the low stone wall around the castle. It makes a lovely spot to have a picnic... More

This ruined castle is 'just there'! If you didn't know about it you would drive by. It's a charming, small, moated somewhat intact castle. The village of Nunney is charming too, off the beaten track.

Much recommended. One of my favorite places to stop by. Nunney is a simply beautiful village with so much to see and the castle is a heart of it.

A little gem hidden away in a beautiful village, this is well worth a visit. For those interested there is a plaque describing the history, but even if you're not interested in that, it's a lovely place for a stroll or a picnic. It's free, and there are no restrictions so there are often kids scrambling about inside. Note -... More

Cute castle residence with some nice architectural design of spires or corbels poking out near the roof. According to the info kiosk on site, it was built by a rich night as a castle residence for himself. It was preserved through the years but was overtaken and put to ruin during the civil war. I've seen many ruined castles and... More

Fantastic! If you want to be really surprised to find peace and beauty buried in Somerset then you must visit this wonderful village and castle. There is not much information available about the castle but the whole experience is well worth the trouble.

What a find. My husband and I went to lunch with our daughter and family at The George at Nunney. That is worth a visit in itself, see separate review. On walking around this pretty village after lunch we discovered this castle ruin. Yes it only has walls now and does not take long to visit but it is a... More
