Only the ruins remain but well worth a visit if you're in the area. We had a lunch at a little corner cafe (can't remember the name). Nice food but a little expensive as you'd expect in a village with a visitors attraction. Although I'm only just reviewing this castle, we actually visited it in 2014.

This is my all time favourite castle. It isnt huge, and is only a shell now, but it is well worth the visit!

This is really interesting; free to visit, it's almost a miniature castle complete with moat and turrets, in a pretty location surrounded by river and nice period houses. recommended

Although relatively small, the remnants of Nunney Castle are impressive and certainly allow visitors' minds to ponder the many historic events, battles and conflicts that these stones and the site once witnessed. The castle still retains its four walls and turrets which, coupled with the surrounding moat, make for a really beautiful piece of history in a truly beautiful Somerset... More

Tucked away behind some houses and across the road from The George Hotel. Interesting small castle ruins with good information at the entrance. Free entry.

Although the castle is now a shell, it is very accessible from Nunney village and you can go inside the ruin. It is possible to see the supports for floors and staircases and their are stone fireplaces high on the walls. It is educational for young children and a quick visit can be made free of charge.

As myself and my partner were staying right opposite this captivating castle. Once you get inside, it is rather small and not as spacious as you may think it was. Nevertheless, you can still see and imagine its true beauty. : )

I came across Nunney Castle quite by accident while staying in Somerset in September. What a find! Nunney Castle is a ruin but very interesting to see. The village is quaint and I spent a happy afternoon exploring the village and the church. Lots of nice country walks thereabouts too.

Brought my children here weekly, years ago. We could feed the ducks go for walks and watch the fish in the moat around the castle. Now just go for a wonder around after a nice walk
