Lovely that this castle is free and has a great playground too. We were able to take part in a (pay-for) short archery session, which kept us occupied. The tea room is quite simple so don’t expect much, although a short mini-golf course is an option too. What’s not to like?

A nice attraction where you can just wander, take in the views and enjoy life! Parts of the castle restored and the recent history of the occupiers was very interesting. Free entry when we went

Beautiful castle and so peaceful. Very nice that dog friendly so we all can walked around together. The weather was so good and we spend time all day there, perfect for kids as there a playground outside castle and crazy golf inside castle.

The downside is that there no food served in the cafe but you can bring your own food as plenty areas to have picnic. But we didn’t know so had to drive to Asda to get some food (about 4 mins drive) and back. We’ll be visiting again as my daughter loves so much!

Visited Caldicot Castle with while staying with my parents on a visit to UK.
Loved the casual atmosphere, and the summery feeling of the historic place, with kids running around in the sun and families having picnics in the sunshine.

With free parking and no admission costs, I wasn't expecting much from Caldicot Castle. It's great, though. Parts of the original, thirteen century walls are ruined, but the gatehouse was restored by a wealthy Victorian and there's a wealth of history to explore. We went on a Bank Holiday Monday - there were friendly, informative volunteers in historical costume and lots of visitors enjoying the castle and grounds. There are plenty of stairs to climb, if you're so inclined, and great views from the tops of the towers. The grounds are extensive (500 acres) and include a large artificial lake. The tea shop is fully licensed. We've paid to visit castles with less to offer, and still come away happy. The only caution I'd mention is the nearest pub that serves food (and which looked really nice) doesn't open on a Monday.
