This castle is so magical - surrounded by gardens, and a moat - if you are quiet you can hear the history come to life - love getting an ice cream and walking around this castle and super walks around the back of it along the river.

We visited Nunney castle on a lovely Saturday evening. Walking around the moat and looking inside the ruins was really nice, and it's a privilege to still have such an old relic to look around. The visit really only takes 15 minutes tops so I wouldn't necessarily travel to visit the castle but go check it out if you are... More

Easy to get around, not too big and peaceful. No entry fee to pay either! There really is nothing to dislike at all.

There is a limited amount to be said about a desolate structure of stone. I enclose the two information plaques which are placed around the moat. We were watching the activities of a mother duck and her goslings. She jumped over the wall and the goslings started sending out panic 'where are you' calls. She responded and the trio wandered...

Visit Nunney - see the castle (which is free) and try the pub or the cafe. Castle is wonderful - moated & lovely to walk around. Pub does good food & great garden. Cafe in Nunney is good too. Great place to spend an afternoon & fun for kids too.

Was staying in Castle Cary nearby and a couple of locals recommended Nunney Castle. Found it on my GPS and drove there. Got free parking on a small street, about 20 feet from the entrance to the castle. The castle is small, but surrounded by a moat and trees. Three sides are beautiful and make great photos. The other side... More

A beautiful castle surrounded by a moat. Well worth a visit to this sleepy village and lovely little church. Kids loved it!

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 :)
