We discovered Nunney Castle by accident whilst staying nearby. Our landlady was kind enough to invite me for a walk with her which took us to Nunney, we returned later to have a good look around the town and castle. The setting is perfect, a peaceful village with beautiful views. The castle is surrounded by a moat, has information boards... More

We purposely set out to find the castle nestled behind the main street in Nunney and we weren't disappointed. It wasn't busy, so we spent a coupe of hours placing bits of the architecture and internal design together in our imaginations. If you look closely you can see the remnants of a spiral staircase, carved graffiti from another era and... More

My boyfriend and I were visiting the area for Longleat, and went for dinner one night at a nearby pub. On the way back, we spotted this castle, and went to have a look. Even though it was in ruins, it was beautiful. We loved the fact it was so quiet and peaceful and we took our time having a... More

As the title, has a nice moat too all the way around, filled with fish. Peeps having picnics on the grass edge of the moat. Lovely.

The castle has three sides that are almost completely intact which make for some nice pictures. There is no charge to walk enter which allows you to walk around the moat and enter the castle. It is also in the middle of a beautiful village. Visiting both the castle and the village would be a short stop.

The little village of Nunney is no hot spot - but I can hardly wait to return - because it is perfect at what it is. Simply one of the loveliest spots we've come upon. Pulled off the highway to see Nunney Castle and fell in love with the village AND the castle.The castle is a knights' castle, so it's... More

Lovely ruined castle with a moat around it, next to the river. It's free to visit and perfect for taking a picnic on a nice day. Open all hours. The kids love it!

The castle ruin is small and surrounded by a moat full of fish and access is over a small wooden bridge. Young children seem to especially love it, possibly because of the smaller scale. If they are fans of feeding ducks, a little path next to the castle leads in the direction of the church and a small stream opposite.... More
