Absolutely a must to visit Croft Castle, so interesting and lots of hands on, no roped of areas, when we visited a lady asked if she could play the baby grand piano and it was lovely to hear as you walked around Croft castle. The national trust volunteers very knowledgable and made it very interesting.

The staff were friendly and welcoming. We did two tours; the attic and cellars. Both were interesting though my children preferred the attic tour as there were more stories attached to it. We spent a whole day there and still didn't get everything done. There were more easy to follow and children friendly sheets to find their way around the... More

We went whilst on holiday as being members we try to find new places to visit. Took the dog and a picnic and had a great day! We walked for a couple of hours first, had a picnic and then looked around the castle. All the facilities were great - love the variety of walks and the play trail for... More

I had a peak through the negative reviews and suspect that they are those who are not NT members and who pod hard cash on a bad day having not researched the place. So Croft Castle is the name of the place and it's not a castle but a house built on the style of a castle. It's also very1920s... More

Really enjoyed this particular National Trust property. It is very varied - something for all the family. The house itself whilst not showy presents itself as a home and tells an interesting story, we also found the house guides very informative and willing to engage. The church is interesting, the parkland and walks magnificent and the kitchen gardens really surpassed... More

We come here very often, as the whole family enjoys what it has to offer such as the some of the best walks you can think of for the dogs "makes sure you bring a towel, the dogs might jump into the pounds" a great coffee shop and a great play area for the kids while you relax and enjoy... More

The freedom to roam around the house was great and the staff were so helpful and informative! The site was clean and tidy with great facilities. The tea room was lovely offering a range of lovely things to eat and drink! The free maps were great - giving numerous options of lovely walks and the signage on the walks was... More

Great Visit a must on any kind of Day When we went it rained so we stayed in the Castle Church and Stables. The Castle take a long time to get round but unlike most Castles you can see it first hand even touch some items. The castle is laid out so it shows the past up to the future... More

My wife and I spent a good few hours here and could have easily spent more time if we had had it. We arrived early before the castle opened so it was very quiet at first so we had time to enjoy the gardens on our own. When the castle opened it was very interesting and the many guides inside...

Croft Castle at first appearance seems quite promising. It is in an attractive setting with a pretty church next to it. Sadly it is not in very good condition internally. It is quite sparsely furnished and not really very interesting - a shame. We went on a tour of the cellars but that was also rather disappointing. There are marked... More
