Moat and Turret
Sep 2021
Great little castle. Just a shell as most of these ruins are, plenty of clues in the masonry to imagine what it may have been like. Cafe on the corner of Castle st. is excellent, friendly natives !

Small but photogenic.

Love the moat but be careful with young children. A very picturesque place to visit, have a picnic or takeaway from the Moat & Turret cafe. A stroll around the centre of Nunney is also worthwhile

Probably worth a visit, but no parking for motorhomes, so we will never know..
Sep 2021
This was a big disappointment. Although the castle and village look nice and worth a stop , there is absolutely no place to park a motorhome or higher vehicle (the castle car park has a very low height barrier). As a result, we had to turn around and head off elsewhere. It would have been nice of English Heritage to have pre-warned us of car park height limits on their website. So near and yet so far....

Very complete castle
Aug 2021 • Couples
While in the area had a search for English heritage places and picked up on this interesting castle! As you can see in pics it’s nestled within a small moat, it’s quite picturesque and there was a hen do or something getting a photo shoot while we were there.

Not a long detour, only spent about half hour or so but interesting place.

Great little historic stop off
Jul 2021 • Couples
It was great to see an actual very old still standing castle with a moat in a quaint little village. I'm
So impressed this has stood the test of time and it's fascinating to take a walk through and see the old architecture. We visited without the kids on a rare adult trip but our kids would have loved this just as much as us and I imagine there would have been lots of fun and make believe play inside as it would be easy to picture being back there.
It'll only take up around 30 minutes of your time so it's not a day trip out, but it's a great stop off, especially as incredibly it's one of the rare free places like this you can go see.

Definitely worth a stop
Jul 2021
We were visiting a nearby attraction and decided to stop off here. It was definitely worth it. Only a little castle, but the ruins are well preserved with a moat surrounding it. It's very photogenic, as is the quaint little village it's set in.

Amazing building in cross section! So pleased that we visited this little gem! A wonderful snapshot of a castle and so atmospheric with the moat.

Awesome castle with moat
Jun 2021 • Couples
Fabulous looking castle from the 14th century. Based on the Bastille this Norman stone castle has still got an impressive look, feel and aura about it. Royalist during the bulk of the ECW until The New Model Army under Fairfax and Cromwell rearranged the entrance with cannon!

Hidden Gem
Jun 2021
Nunney Castle is a bit of a hidden gem within the very center of this lovely Hamlet. It is a true medieval castle complete with moat but it was damaged during the English Civil War. It is now run by English Heritage but it is free to enter and explore. Often described as one of Somerset's most romantic castles, it is well worth a visit. Very close by is a church, pub and a shop which lead you nicely around the village.

Pleasant exploration of this local gem
Jun 2021
Picturesque old castle in an equally picturesque village. The castle is free to access, but small so don't expect something which will take up your whole day. Being located in a quiet villlage on the Mendips, your visit should be a tranquil one. However, be wary of the moat especially if you have children with you. The weed coverage in the moat can be deceptive, and only recently a young boy ran on to what he thought was grass and would have drowned if his father hadn't dived in to the moat to resue him. Keep your children close and you should have no problem. The village itself has a duck pond, interesting church and a traditional pub in the centre. There is also a small shop by the bridge.
