  • A charming place to visit. was much smaller than we thought from the pictures. Some bits were closed when we went due to snow damage a week or so before. Has a nice cafe.  more »
  • A tranquil fortified Manor House . Alas only a shell , but its spirit is still pulsating beneath the surface. And there's always some nice cake to have in the tiny cafe .  more »
  • Visited here with my mum, sister, brother in law and niece. All the staff were amazing. The tea rooms were amazing- the cakes looked incredible. Only advice i have is maybe a sign from car park to the...  more »

  • Fascinating English Heritage property which is in an excellent state of preservation given its age. We hadn't been here for almost 18 years! The new shop and reception is very well set out and there is lots of information on this excellent property and it's history. I recalled that the free audio guide was very good and it didn't disappoint this time, lending a lot to your tour of the various buildings. On arrival we had the usual soft/hard sell from the charming young woman behind the counter and I agreed to gift-aiding our entrance. We didn't want membership. It was all well done and ultra polite.😊 I used my own set of headphones with the audio guide, carefully saved from an Air Canada flight, and nearly left them behind. They saved me holding the guide to my ear all the time. Worth doing! I was very impressed with the property, it's history and the location. Oh, the cafe was also really good, though the scones were a tad dry..... work is needed on those!! Otherwise it was all good!!
  • My favourite castle in England. We've been back so many times. We have belonged to various heritage organisations over the years so that usually we got free entry. This castle is wonderful to visit all year round. Even if it is raining it is lovely because it still has all its rooves intact. The free audio guide is excellent.There is a tea room in the car park. Parking costs £1. Every part of the castle is fascinating and beautiful. I absolutely love it.
  • Beautiful historic monument. Well worth a visit. I would recommend the audio guide to add to the experience.
  • Worth a look around, though perhaps an audio guide might be worth while. Not as large as the website makes it sound - but it does also have a very pleasant tearoom as well.
  • I had a great visit to Stokesay Castle. Be sure to climb the tower for the nice views. Many thanks to the lady in the shop for opening it back up for me after it closed so I could get a keyring.
