I have to give it 5 stars. We went on a Monday and it was closed. The guard let us in though. We didn’t linger but the site is very well maintained. Definitely worth the detour.

The castle was free to enter on the day we visited and was lovely. It's setting is calm and quiet. It has free parking and a children's play area in addition to a small cafe run by a very friendly and helpful volunteer. You can...More

With the weather so unpredictable we wanted to do something cheap and cheerful that would allow my son to get out and about, exploring. We have been here multiple times over the years and its always a nice bit of time out of the house....More

We went to Caldicot Castle this past weekend and we were pleasantly surprised to see how lovely it is. The grounds are great and my boys had a great time. Lots of history and lots of information. Really enjoyed it!!

Don’t make a day trip of it unless you’re going to a special event held there, like a food festival. The castle itself is nothing compared to the other castles around. It used to be apartments where people lived.

Beautiful Castle - Free to walk around the outside. There is also a nature reserve and we took a lot of beautiful photos for my Thai girlfriends blog/account of Wales.

Nice for a stroll around and has picturesque countryside, the castle itself is not the best castle in the world but is starting to host some pretty big artists such as little mix which is pretty exciting- looking forward to seeing more of this!

Unlike many of the other castles in Wales, this one isn't a complete ruin. In fact, it's still lived in. The gatehouse, and its imposing twin towers, sets you on a path of adventure that is the equal of anything else in this area. Great...More

We saw dogs inside on our visit....not sure if they would be allowed inside the rooms though. Lots of lovely walks for them in the grounds :)

There is a free car park just inside the grounds, next to the castle and children's park area.
