To properly enjoy this castle you would need to go to an event there (such as a wedding) or one of the occasional touts. Otherwise, you have to look at the ruins from the public footpaths that skirt its perimeter. The corners are intact but there are no remaining walls but you do get to see 'inside' because of that.

Stumbled upon this when we were attempting to find the pub, children enjoyed exploring, and also their first experience of “kissing gates”.

The Remains of Past Grandeur.
Aug 2019
This castle that was so significant in the history of the north is in private hands and so can only be viewed from the footpath surrounding it.

Although we have visited Sheriff Hutton many times, this was the first time that we had taken the walk around the castle. We didn't find the best way of starting the walk - if we do it again, we will begin in the churchyard. The gate to the path is behind the church and you need to follow the trach to the right to reach the castle; the castle cannot be seen at that point. It is worth being aware that some parts of the path can be muddy even on a nice day but it is a very easy walk.

Even though the castle is very much a ruin, it is still impressive and we enjoyed the natural surroundings as well.

What remains of the castle is stunning, really beautiful and the area is so welcoming and peaceful. You can see the remains from various vantage points.

Beautiful views.

The ruins are still large and amazing. Yes you can't get near them as they are private and fenced off but just size of what is remaining is astounding. The whole castle will have been majestic. The perimeter walk was lovely and tranquil. Just a perfect stroll with the family.

Shame its not English Heritage...

I past this castle on the way to Pickering castle, not previously having eve known about it.
Unfortunately access is very restricted as the castle is on privately owned ground. From what I understand the castle and associated farm were put up for sale a year or two back – not sure if its ben sold. To be honest it’s something English heritage should be buying to safeguard its existence.
There are signs saying you can view by prior arrangement -which is ok if you have planned your journey but not if you are just passing. The ruins are fairly extensive and you can see quite a lot from the road and the pathway which goes around the grounds (viewing from some distance away). Could be a big asset for the village.

Possible to walk around the perimeter but unfortunately there are no orientation boards to tell you what you are looking at or the history of the Castle.

A well posted perimeter walk around the castle. Privately owned castle clearly random walkers are not encouraged to enter the castle grounds, best keepout as some of the walls look dangerous. Groups by arrangement. But one is welcome to complete the circuit on a local footpath. Somewhat overgrown with nettles so take care. Worth the walk as some spectacular photo opportunities.

A Good Walk
May 2018 • Solo
We were staying at a local caravan site and wanting to both go for a walk and see the Castle, I set off. It was a lovely sunny day but not knowing how to get in I popped into the village Post Office and asked. They are so friendly in there. Off I went and found the access lane and as warned, you cannot actually enter the castle. It's private and fenced off. I used the footpath around the fence line for most of it but a muddy path and rambles with stinging nettles beat me. I was only wearing shorts!
Still it's a lovely and impressive ruin and I'm glad I made the effort.
