Came across Croft Castle when I was looking for somewhere to walk my dog whilst visiting a local rugby club. Fantastic walks available, the grounds are massive and there was a number of different walks available, all with different lengths and times. I only got to walk through the café area, but looking at the menu it was really nice,... More

You actually need a full day to enjoy all the National Trust has to offer. The castle feels like home from home, can feel the homeliness inside. Walks are made very interesting by the leaflets proved with the Trust. Enjoy yourselves - cafeteria can deal with a hungry appetite!! Nat Trust members free admission!!

A truly excellent National Trust property with superb walled garden, house and chapel to explore. The parkland is extensive with walks and even one to an iron age hill fort. We haven't eaten here, simply because we take our own picnic and enjoy the views towards the Black Mountains - and it always seems to be sunny so why stay... More

During a scenic drive we stumbled on this castle house in a lovely setting. We decided not to go in (actually there was a sign the castle was closed so when we saw it open just decided to do the grounds instead, after all how many interiors can you see in a day!). The gardens where nice and we saw... More

A lovely country estate with house, church and grounds. We were able to wander round the house as we wished (no 'herding') and there were plenty of well-informed volunteer guides to help us along. Particularly impressive were the two rooms done out 'in period'; a 1920s sitting room, complete with piano player, and a 1930s dining room ready for the... More

Popped to see here in the pouring rain, it was a good way to spend a few hours. Most cost effective if your a national trust member.

Visiting over the bank holiday we had the chance to watch and take part in the WWI events. The enthusiasm of the staff and genuine passion for what they were doing made for a super day out. The woodcutting in the woods was a particular highlight and our boys were genuinely fascinated. It really was like stepping back in time... More

This is one of the local National Trust properties to us and It never seems to disappoint. Every time we go we spot something different. This particular visit there was a First World War themed event around the grounds. We are members of the National Trust and this property is certainly not a disappointment. The volunteers and staff are always... More
