This is a lovely stately home nestled in the Herefordshire countryside. It would be lovely to see more of the castle as only a small amount is open to the public which is a shame. The maze is great fun for children & the gardens are great for adults and are simply stunning.

One not to be missed and make sure you take a Castle tour. It is full of history and so much to see and do. The gardens are very special and need exploring. The Orangery is a great stop off for refreshments. One not to be missed.

Castle and Gardens in rural Herefordshire a good guided tour of part of the Castle by a knowledgeable Guide called Mike, only took 3/4 an hour , would like to have seen more but many rooms not available to view to Visitors.Lovely Gardens ,obviously past their best now, but still stunning.Lots of history to this place certainly worth a visit.

Fabulous gardens including a very large walled garden area with water features and 2 large gazebos, as well as beautiful kitchen garden which produces fruit and vegetables for the restaurant. There is also a maze with a central tower that affords lovely views over the gardens. The house itself is a quite substantial and as a building is very interesting.... More

Being regular visitors to historic houses and castles and seeing the great reviews on TA, we were expecting more. Whilst there are still some parts of the original castle visible, most of the house is Victorian, or faked by the American owner in the 1990s. Pretty much everything you see on the castle tour is a fake, reproduction or from... More

We were lucky with the October weather, but it would be well worth visiting however awful the weather. The formal gardens, within a wonderful Victorian walled garden, are beautifully designed and landscaped, and imaginatively planted, with plenty of colour even in October. Don't miss the lower pond area. Overall the location is superb and the parkland offers plenty of scope... More

Apparently up for sale @ £12 million pounds! You get the castle & 100 acres! Steal! 👍🏻 Our guide was fantastic!

This review relates only to the gardens and the cafe, and not to the guided tour of the castle. This was a family outing of five made because one person had not seen the gardens. The gardens obviously would not be at their best in September but there was still more than enough to surprise, intrigue, inform and make you... More

An amazing location with simply stunning gardens. I was in heaven being green fingered myself. I will be returning next June for certain. The tour was informative and well worth the extra cost. Amazing shortbread in the cafe before the tour and an acceptable lunch after the tour. Stunning views and maze. I recommend it highly. Would be nice to... More

My wife and I visited Hampton Court Castle whilst on a weekend break to Herefordshire. This place is well worth a visit. We visited as Historic House members. It is quite expensive otherwise but no more than usual entry fee prices for visiting stately homes. House visits are by guided tours and our guide Sue was not only amusing but... More
