A fascinating house which this year is showing how the family was affected by what happened in 1914.We especially liked the man who was upstairs playing the organ and then popped up downstairs playing the piano while he and some of the guests sang.The walled garden was interesting too especially the restoration of the greenhouse with its fascinating system to...

An enjoyable day out is promised at Croft. The owners have lived here since before the Norman Conquest, and you can see why they stayed. The house and contents are well worth seeing. Talk to the friendly guides.

Enjoyable day out and walk around the grounds, lovely to get out and enjoy some fresh air and sample some history around the castle. However sadly the views that are promised in the leaflet weren't viable that day (plus there is a big quarry on the other side) which was a tad disappointing, but you cannot change the weather! When... More

Interesting family house with lovely views. Lots of memorabilia, photos and scrapbook which are interesting. Largest walled garden which was unexpected.

The room guides were very friendly and well informed. The tour of the croft (attic) was interesting although those flies should be removed!

Beautiful castle with fully decorated rooms, some of the rooms upstairs are restricted as they are used by the family. Had a very nice soup and cake

A superb stately home with views over some marvelous countryside. A working farm on site provides food to the restaurant. There are several walks of differing lengths available. Parking adjacent to the attraction. Deer and cattle wander freely around the parkland.

Attracted here by the lure of beekeeping information. The gardens were lovely and the vegetable plot the best ever seen, played a bit of badminton on the lawn. Lovely to see a house of this period with some very keen am-dram volunteers, music and the chance to touch some replicated items which brought it all alive a bit more. The... More

Croft Castle hides itself away in the beautiful north Herefordshire countryside, accessed via a twisting B road and some distance from a busy motorway or even an A class road. Covering some 1500 acres of gardens and pastureland this National Trust property is a must see if visiting this delightful region of England. It was whilst sipping a steaming latte... More

As we were touring earlier in the month we happened across this lovely NT property and decided to stop and have a look. We had our Labrador with us and would have been able to take him as far as the cafe but no further into the grounds although we could have taken him for a long walk in the... More
