If you are in the area, take a little detour to see this "cute" castle. It's a small castle with a water moat and a wooden bridge to cross. We lucked out and had the castle all to ourselves when we went. The entrance wall is mostly gone, but the rest of the outer walls still look great. With the... More

Nice little castle dating from the 1300s. The exterior is mainly complete but the interior is missing. The surrounding moat is complete and is water filled. No admission charge, free parking a couple of hundred yards away. Whole thing is very photogenic. Well worth a visit if you are in the vicinity. On English Heritage website.

The Castle is in a lovely setting with a moat. Was quite impressed with the stonework of the Castle considering how old it is. Very pretty place.

This is a lovely little castle, we wandered around it and enjoyed the moat, walking around and through the remains of the building and enjoying the lovely location. It doesn't take long but worth a pit stop if you are passing, it's very pretty.

We stopped by as were in the area, and this was a lovely find. It's a small castle ruin that has a moat full of water. One can walk around the castle within 5 minutes, so this will not be somewhere you need to spend too much time at. It's free to visit and the village itself is also quite... More

While not necessarily worth a long distance special trip (unless you are a committed castle enthusiast), Nunney Castle is a must-see if you are staying in the area. It is easily accessible (a couple of steps and some rough walking once you are there) and has an almost idyllic location. It also graphically encapsulates a period of English history. Oh... More

Lovely little castle with moat. Only worth it if you are passing through but nice n nevertheless. The village is small but pretty. Stay at Penny's Mill if you go there though. That's not to be missed.

Perhaps one of the smallest castles I've ever visited and although in ruins is well preserved. Apart from the moat the Nunney Brook also runs close by making for a very enjoyable setting.
