About
The Home of Welsh Castle Life: Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the Castle’s exciting past. Caldicot Castle’s impressive structure is surrounded by an idyllic 55 acre Country Park. You will be able to travel through time and discover the home of Welsh castle life, from medieval times to the twentieth century. The castle was developed as a fortress by Royal hands in the Middle Ages and restored as a Victorian family home. The river Nedern winds its way through the park and the wildlife pond is home to a variety of wildfowl.

Magical gem
Oct 2021
Castle is always open for external access around the walls and the country park. On Sunday afternoons there is free entry to the interior, a really magical area with many different interesting buildings against the walls. No internal entry to buildings except one open tower and the toilets. Shop is a simple counter selling coffee and a few gifts. Good parking nearby, can get busy but also fields to park in. Football pitches adjacent, you can watch a youth match on Sunday afternoon (afterwards the castle might be rather busy with muddy boys using the superior toilets and grabbing a snack!)

A great day out
Aug 2021
Very well preserved interior towers. So much so that it was even used after the 2nd World War, to provide temporary accommodation to those in need. Set in magnificent grounds in the town of Caldicot. From one of the towers, it is possible to see the Severn Bridge. It also has an interesting history. It is now owned by the Monmouthshire council and used for many functions during the Summer. A delightful castle and walks making this a good experience.

Fabulous and free day out
Jul 2021
We visited here with our grandaughter, arriving at 9 on a Saturday morning. This was a bit of a mistake as we thought the cafe would be open but it is actually inside the castle so not open until 11! She played in the excellent park and we did several circuits of the walls to pass the time before the castle doors opened at 11.
We had a good wander round the inside, looking at the various towers, before sitting under the awning and having a most welcome ice cream and coffee. The towers were closed due to Covid but the place was very well kept, staff were friendly and it is a great place to visit for a few hours.

Lovely day out
Jun 2021 • Family
I can't believe, living just over the bridge, that I've never visited this fantastic castle before.

On a lovely sunny day we decided on a new family day out and weren't disappointed.

A great looking ruined castle, plenty of places to sit and roam, and perfect for a picnic. And the best thing there was no entry fee. Amazing. We shall certainly come again.

Very nice day out with or without kids and dog.,

Very nice Castle with loads of free parking at the Gates or as you enter the grounds. Plenty of walking space and little trails to get around. Dogs welcome and a coffee shop within the courtyard with seating. A pond to the back of the castle and a church to view also in the village. No height restriction on parking and easy access for all . Toilets are in the car park for guests

An impressive castle
Sep 2020 • Couples
Despite the pouring rain, we had a pleasant walk around Caldicot Castle. Free to get in. None of the inside stuff was open due to COVID 19 so we couldn’t go up the tower but perhaps on another visit. The kiosk was open for hot/cold drinks and snacks, with payment by card only. There were picnic tables available. Bought the guide which is very interesting (£2.60). Would pop in again if combining with a visit to somewhere else as well. Lots of space for children to run around in.

Relaxed family birthday gathering
Sep 2020
Our small family group met in the extensive country park yesterday to celebrate a birthday with a picnic.
We could get takeaway coffees from the small castle cafe which was well organised.
The toilets were clean with hand sanitiser.
Quite a lot of people but everyone keeping their distance.

Beautiful day
Sep 2020 • Couples
Decided to come here for a few hours and it was a lovely day which definitely helped. And the inside castle grounds were open which was good.
Free parking is a definite plus, but the loo's didn't have any sanitiser in which is obviously not great in these times.
But apart from that would definitely come back when the castle towers are open

So easy to tie in with a trip to Chepstow
Jan 2020
We visited on a grey day in January but all of these amazing Welsh castles are thought provoking. In better weather a great place to wander. Well worth a visit.

Worth a look
Sep 2019
This is a small castle with lots of interesting history. You can climb the Towers or just walk the extensive grounds, there is a childrens play area and plenty of parking. There are various events from Concerts to just Fun family events.
