We wanted to say a huge thank you to Steve who gave us and a small group a 45 minute tour of the castle. Steve literally brought the medieval castle to life with his detailed description of it's history and the lives and tales of those that lived there. He was fascinating and very knowledgeable and imparted his knowledge with a great sense of humour. Steve came across very personable making us all feel very welcome. It just wouldn't have been the same without him. Thank you Steve and thank you to the two lovely ladies who greeted us. All in all a very enjoyable visit in a very beautiful area.

Visited as part of our ‘staycation’. Excellent example of a medieval castle. We took part in a 45 minutes guided tour, conducted by Steve. He was very knowledgeable and engaging. When visiting the ‘keep’ part of the castle be advised it has steep narrow steps. The views from the top are worth it though. Highly recommend visiting this place.

Never knew this existed until we visited the area for the first time in Sept 2020. Its a serious medieval fortification, or it was until partly destroyed in the English Civil War. I am familiar with the well known castles of North Wales, and this comes pretty close to being as impressive and in its time as formidable. A wonderful location too, great for views and photos. We took the guided tour, which was all outside and socially distanced. Our guide was excellent, informative and entertaining, just right. As always the excellent £4 EH guidebook is well worth it and helps you understand the castle. There is a nearby visitor centre with shop, cafe and toilets, and a car park, all just a short walk from the castle, and close to the village of Goodrich. Its a must see if you're visiting the area.
