Visited here in December with husband and young daughter and friends to visit Santa and the Castle. Not disappointed. Such a lovely venue and hilarious Santa. Extremely friendly and welcoming staff, we actually had concerns over booking our time slot to see Santa to coincide with our friends who were running late and they went out of their way to... More

We had a very enjoyable and informative visit to Croft Castle and Parkland in late August. We arrived quite close to closing time and were shown how to see the rooms that were on offer within the limited time. The gardens and views are very impressive. Would certainly revisit when I have more time. Recommend to all.

I travelled from Oxfordshire today to meet family, and to enjoy the Christmas activities with their children. After a 2 hour drive, I was met with a 'Closed because of the bad weather'. I could not believe it. Storms have been battering Scotland and the North of England. NOT Yarpole in the west. A poor excuse Croft. The show should... More

Visited in foul November downpour and enjoyed the house interior, not feasible to walk the gardens. It was muddy enough over the car park, which needs a hard surface to replace the muddy grey sticky clay that slashes onto anything when wet. The house itself had enough rooms of interest, good stories of past times, even though some bedrooms were... More

This was a second visit to this National Trust property. It was a lovely dry Autumn day so that made it a bonus. The castle itself is full of history and is set out as it would have been years ago. Each room had a National Trust guide to answer any questions.The decor looked amazing with its bright colours and... More

Croft Castle is a lovely National Trust property located in the stunning Herefordshire countryside. We visited on a beautiful Autumn day. The house is very interesting and the friendly and enthusiastic volunteer guides gave us plenty of information about the history of the house which made the visit more interesting. The castle is surrounded by parkland and woods and we... More

What a fun day visiting this castle that is actually still lived in. The inside was fascinating and there was a very helpful tour guide. The chapel outside the castle is not to be missed and there are lovely walks around the property which is properly marked with length and difficulty. The walks are also pet friendly. A must see...

The House has been themed to the period of the Great War (1914-18), and the soldiers of this family & estate workers. The church close to the house is interesting with a white climbing rose clinging to its west wall. There is a walled garden worth viewing.
