Look out for the special events especially if they are hosting the Battle of Mortimer's Cross re-enactment and medieval encampment and market. The excellent... More

We asked and were sent by a friendly visitor guide on the ancient forest walk. It was fields all the way, muddy cattle fields. There was a nice tea room and play area but poor baby... More

Amazing walk, various types from the easy or for the more experienced. Castle and church beautiful. Most of all, lovely homemade coffee cake and great selection of teas. All in all a great day out. P.s loved the cows.

My husband and I visited this castle yesterday and not having been before we thought it was one of the best castles we have visited.It is not a large castle and seems quite cozy compared to some. The rooms are full of furniture which is great to see, I don't like visiting houses that a more or less empty.Nice tea... More

Me & dad went to visit croft castle the week before Christmas & I can honestly say what a beautiful place. The church on the main drive is stunning and open for people to walk round. Beautiful interior & very peaceful. The church is well looked after! The castle was decorated in the WW1 style and this was lovely. Carol... More
