An enjoyable family day

Although there isn't that many attractions,the little castle play area is a firm favourite.The food is quite expensive for what it is but tasty and the coffee is heavenly

Lovely house and gardens brought to life by helpful staff and a lively singer in the saloon . Well worth the visit even on a dull and rainy day .

The castle and nearby church are well preserved and quite photogenic, unfortunately being Autumn the buildings are only open at weekends. The walled garden provides an interesting place to relax and must be something special when in full bloom. The cafe is homely and offers a good range of cakes, etc .... The coffee and tea were excellent

We spent a whole day at Croft Castle, enjoying the house, the gardens and the extensive woods and parkland. It was a great place for us to visit as an older couple, but we could see many families with young children having a great time too. The walk we took up into the woodland was well worth the effort for... More

As we walked out of the entrance hut we heard a Nuthatch and a Raven calling - nice to hear ravens at a castle. This is set in the rolling hills of the Welsh Marches and 30 generations of the Croft family have lived there spanning almost 1000 years. They loved parties and socialising and we particularly liked the Dining... More

Went for a fabulous walk up to Croft Ambrey iron age hill fort. Splendid views all around. Didn't go in the castle this time but will definitely come back and do that when we've more time

You enter the castle via the front door and you are made welcome by one of the house stewards. They give you all the info you need to know how to go the best way around the house. There is some thing called a taster tour, which is like a guided tour, if they are offering it on the day... More

Very interesting property with plenty to see. Staff very helpful and knowledgeable with lots of information about the house and family. The church is small but very beautiful and there are plenty of walks in the parkland. Only moan is that the signs for the Castle, on a busy winding road, as not good with no warning just a small...

We very much enjoyed our visit to Croft. The house is most interesting with very knowledgable guides who are happy to answer any questions you may have. We had a lovely walk in the grounds, followed by one of the best NT cafe lunches ever, reasonably priced as well. Amazing!
