Great guides

The castle and gardens are both worth the visit. The guides are very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. The castle is part of the National Trust.

The house itself is well presented and atmospheric, with plenty of volunteers to advise and assist. Reception into the house was, I felt, a little frosty for a family with 2 young kids. They're no angels at times, but are respectful and under control, so I felt this was a bit high minded of the woman in question. Old school... More

A castle to look at but actually a country house with fine furniture and modern art. The house is extensive and has a fine complement of ghosts. With the family no longer much connected, it does feel rather museum like but gives a good impression of how life was lived in its Edwardian heyday. Relatively few of the rooms upstairs... More

Visited here en route from Malvern to Shrewsbury. Free to NT members. House is charming with extra optional timed tours of cellars and attic. The surprise is the walled garden, an oasis of calm. It is huge and includes flowers as well as fruit trees and a greenhouse. There are plenty of seats and some deckchairs dotted around to enjoy... More

This place has everything - an interesting building with history, places to walk and a cafe serving great soup. Enthusiastic volunteers who brought the place to life. We loved the walled garden and just chilling for a few hours. Only slight minus is that we booked on two separate tours and the second one covered some of the same the... More

My husband and I visited Croft Castle to see a family portrait hanging in the Ambassador's Room. The guides were very informative and also pleased to be able to share their considerable knowledge with family connections. We enjoyed the castle and the church but the grounds are also delightful. The trees are stunning and the walk up to the hill... More

We went here to see bluebells and trees and did the blue walk to the hill fort. It is excellently signposted and an easy walk for an elderly lady. What amazing trees! The very friendly chap in the entrance office have us a walk guide which we forgot to look at so missed certain features...Just have to go again! Even... More

We have visited many National Trust properties as we are members and this place was just as nice. The rooms may not be as full or informative as some other properties but with National Trust every property is unique and its impossible to compare. Infact some of my favourite NT properties are actually the smallest! We spent a lovely couple... More

Croft Castle at first appearance seems quite promising. It is in an attractive setting with a pretty church next to it. Sadly it is not in very good condition internally. It is quite sparsely furnished and not really very interesting - a shame. We went on a tour of the cellars but that was also rather disappointing. There are marked... More

The house itself is a nice short visit and the walled garden should be better when in full bloom. There are plenty of walks to be had around the grounds and a pretty good shop. However, this attraction is let down by the restaurant. The seating inside and outside is good and the overall look is very good but this... More
