“Sorry about the damage!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

A wonderful romantic ruin with lovely views which the grandchildren really enjoyed - but sadly we have to admit an ancestor captured and demolished it in the 17th century! Whoops!

“Very nice ruins of the castle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

It was not far from the castle and really worth to go for a walk and see the area. The nature is stunning and in this peaceful area you can see all kinds of birds, fish etc.

“Interesting ruins”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Didn't like portaloos and EH's membership marketing whenever you visit anywhere of theirs. Good views of the surrounding countryside.

“Historic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

A very interesting location in a very peaceful setting. Hard to imagine how people lived in such an early era. Well worth a visit but perhaps a good idea to go early before it gets too busy. You can then visit the new Sherborne Castle to compare.
