It was a very wet day, but still this spectacular ruin of a castle was enjoyed. The audio guide was extremely good being very informative.

A good audio system to guide you round the castle. Unfortunately there is a non reclaimable car park charge.

The moment we found where to get tickets, we were greeted by two youngsters who were so welcoming, amusing and helpful. Who says that the young can't communicate with the elderly! We were given, with an explanation of how they worked, recorded information sets, which were very useful and informative. The castle also has information boards, which most people used.... More

English Heritage are to be commended for the way this castle has been made accessible for the general public. The lady on the desk who sold the ticket was very pleasant and informative. The audio guide was excellent and we were able to take our dogs round with us. It was very interesting and the views and atmosphere were lovely

I visited this location whilst staying in the Forest of Dean. It is on the River Wye and just minutes from our base near Coleford. Not as extensive as the Welsh Castles but it has an interesting and chequered history. The staff were also very helpful as one of party was in a wheelchair and castles were not built with... More

We had a nice time at the castle, we both thought that the audio tour was a really good idea it explained lots about the castle and you could go more in depth on subjects if you wished by pressing different numbers on it.

Didn't know what to expect from their castle - had never heard of it before finding it on the English Heritage app. Must say that we were pleasantly surprised; the castle is well preserved and the site itself is beautiful. Staff also very kind and helpful. Would recommend.

We visited here in July as we were in the area. Entry was about £8.00 each but we didn't mind paying this as English Heritage gets no government funding, the money goes towards the upkeep of the castle and the grounds. The half mile walk to the castle from the visitors centre was easy and very pretty surroundings. The castle... More

English heritage have done a good job of presenting this ruined castle. We spent a pleasant afternoon there, it is a bit of a hike to reach it but there are places to sit once there. The history is explained clearly on the audio guide and boards along the route.
