  • Happened upon this by accident. We decided to follow a sign as we were driving around Holt. The signage for the castle is a bit hit and miss, once you get into Baconsthorpe village you have to keep yo...  more »
  • After a visit to Holt my partner and I fancied a walk somewhere close by and we thought we’d check out the castle ruins as neither of us had been before. We followed the sat nav down a very muddy farm...  more »
  • This castle (or the remains thereof) is worth a visit. Don't be misled by the Satnav into going down the rutted track from the village, there is a metalled road to the site. Currently (Feb 2018) there...  more »

  • Very interesting place to visit. Good place for a picnic or just a walk around. Entrance is free and there is a little car park. Information boards give interesting details about the place. Nice lake with a moat around the castle. Well worth a visit. Warning: There are two roads into the carpark. Make sure you use the main road from the south. GPS may try and take you in from a narrow mud bath of a farm track from the West. Unless you have a Landover it's really not suitable for normal vehicles!
  • Nice remains of a large estate. Fun to walk through and explore.
  • Follow the montypythonesque road signs to this nice English heritage site. Well maintained with interesting sign boards thought-out the property. Download the audio tour if you want to know more.
  • Very pretty and peaceful place, some nice walks in the area.
  • A very interesting castle in a fabulous location, originally a family home and then fortified to encompass the buildings. Some fascinating architecture, sadly it was partly demolished before falling into ruin. Well worth a look if you are near Sherringham and fancy venturing inland a few miles.
