  • In the bucolic village of Spofforth near Wetherby there are the ruins of a imposing house known locally loosely as a castle. Dating back to the 14th Century it was the country seat of Yorkshire nobili...  more »

  • Proper old castle set in the village park. Free. Could be a bit spooky. Lovely walks nearby.
  • Steeped in fascinating history and well maintained grounds in a lovely village
  • Lovely little Castle which took about an hour to stroll around and read the boards and take pics. Shame that it isn't manned and that no toilet nearby, nearest about 1/2 a mile down road at a local pub called the Railway, although it does state that one board. No good when you have driven a couple of hours and need to spend a penny. Otherwise nice grounds, only one or two picnic benches and even though signs said dogs not allowed, there were dogs in the grounds, but not surprising as English Heritage book says dogs allowed, so the rules contradict each other. So wouldn't advise to have a picnic on the grass. Would have got 4* but for loo issue, dog rules and lack of picnic tables.
  • As I use to live in this village I have to say its nice white lady ghost story is spooky as I did see something one night walking the dogs at the rear of Castile
  • What a lovely little castle. My 4 year old loved it :)
