Owned by English Heritage, and is free to visit. Now a ruin, but u can see by the boards on the outside how it must have looked when it was complete. A must for any historians and lovers of castles and homes from the period. You can see where the floors used to be, and even though it's just a... More

Was surprised to find this beautiful castle was free to enter. Has a moat with fish swimming in it. Really lovely place & just across the road from our hotel. Worth a visit if you are passing.

Well worth a visit! Lovely setting! Not a castle lover but this particular one is lovely! The moat around the outside is clean and pretty. The area kept very trim and tidy. When you wander inside you really feel the history and can imagine it as it was! Would love to live in it when refurbished!!

Nunney castle is somewhere I always take visitors. Last year when we went, the whole moat was covered in new little frogs which was amazing. The moat is full of fishes and plant life. The castle itself is fun and easy to explore. The rest of Nunney is great to explore and there are some great places to have eat... More

Fine old moated castle in pretty Somerset village near Frome. Free admission. Good pub (The George) with fine food nearby. For useful website describing local places to visit see http://www.waggonandhorsesinn.co.uk/places%20to%20visit%201.html

The castle is rather quaint, not much to see though, but great for taking photos. It has a moat around it, and is in the middle of the village, so only a short walk to the church and The George Inn. Lovely village to wander around.

Nunney Castle is a small moated castle built in the 1370s and extensively modernised in the late 16th century. It is now a ruin in the care of English Heritage. The fact that it is free to enter suggests that it is not particularly exciting. However, it is well worth a brief visit if you happen to be passing through... More

Tucked away is this English heritage castle. It is in ruins but enough remains to imagine it in its day. Free to park and enter. Dogs welcome. Made a pleasant afternoon visit.
