We did the double-header with Berrington Hall (see my review of that as well). I suggest spending more time at Berrington just because there is more to see there than at Croft. Croft is not really a castle but a house with castle features. The Croft family are still "in residence" so there is no photography inside the house. The staff are friendly and helpful and willing to talk at length. You can play proper Mahjong if there are 4 of you (and you can understand the rules and the tiles). There are two pianos to play on as well. One was built around 1750 and is a really early example of a Pianoforte (only 5 octaves and no sustain pedal).
The walled garden is quite a surprise and well worth exploring.
We all had some rather good ice-cream from the shop - very tasty. I'd give this an excellant apart from the lack of photography allowed.
