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

There is something about Croft Castle that seems to have a magnetic attraction for us. We first visited back in 2007 and we have returned there on every occasion that we have stayed in the Welsh Marches since. (We are NT members) It is difficult to define why we are drawn back to Croft. Maybe it is the gardens, which... More

We walked the red route today in golden sunshine, stopping off at the Riverside pub at Aymestrey (which was excellent and well worth a visit). The woodland walk was beautiful, with bluebells just coming out, wood anemones, primroses and violets. The sun shone, birds sang and we had stunning views over Herefordshire countryside. This is a great walk, with some... More

The weather wasn't the best when we visited so we didn't have a chance ti wonder around in the parkland. The castle itself was ok but nor unforgetable.

This was our first visit to Croft - what a delight to travel up the tree lined driveway to the top and experience the stunning views on a particularly fine sunny day. Easy parking near the ticket office which housed a welcoming wood burning stove! I am a National Trust member so therefore no entry charge but my two friends... More

We based ourselves here whilst going off for a walk around the estate and up to Croft Ambrey fort in the morning then visited the castle in the afternoon. It was nice having what they called 'free flow' in the house (i.e. you can go in whichever rooms in whatever order you like rather than being herded like cattle).

As a mature couple we enjoy wandering round and learning about properties that the National Trust have taken over. We found the information poorly displayed and the volunteer guides disorganised. there was half an exhibition about the first world war, with very little interpretation. we didn't get much idea of the family history or the architecture. We can see that... More

The castle itself is well worth a visit ,as it catalogues the history of the Croft family who owned and occupied the building ( and it's predecessor ) for almost a thousand years. However,our interest was greatly enhanced by the enthusiasm and knowledge of the friendly staff. This aspect of our visit was particularly evident during the conducted tour of... More

The Castle itself was fascinating. We joined 2 tours, one of the attic & then a tour of the cellars. The gentleman who delivered both tours was fantastic, knowledgeable without been boring and a great sense of humour. We did not have chance to explore the many walks due to time restrictions. The parkland and countryside were amazing. We will... More
