We have visited Croft Castle, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Every season has its own magic, May time, there is an abundance of bluebells in the nearby Croft Woods, enchanting ponds and butterflies to spot. If you just want to have a coffee and snack, you can get a special ticket for the café and just enjoy walking in the... More

Attended a ghost evening organized by the volunteers.Very atmospheric evening tour of the castle followed by a light supper.Well organized and everyone entered into the spirit of the evening.Light supper was excellent and more substantial than expected..The cost of £25 was good value when you consider how expensive theme events can be...and there was only 12 of us.A big thankyou...

We took our four and six year old to the snowman trail and to visit Father Christmas. The visit to Father Christmas was amazing, he is truly the most realistic Santa we have ever seen. The way in which he spoke to the children was so lovely and they were both mesmerised. The elves and all of the staff in... More

Usually love my visits to Croft Castle What light exhibits there were were fabulous but there was just not enough of them to warrant a visit. Most annoyingly we were not told when we paid our entrance fee that last entry to the house was 6 30 pm. Had we been told we would have gone there first. As it... More

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
