  • Came here during a Halloween ghost story event which also included a magic show. Great for the kids, but can also be enjoyable for adults. The castle itself is interesting to walk around with lots of information about it's history available to read.
  • Outstanding castle and gardens, close to Winchcombe in Gloucestershire. A privately run castle in a beautiful country setting. The gardens are well cared for. The castle has a long, rich and sometimes war torn history, including being the home of Katherine Parr, Queen of England and one of the six wives of Henry the Eighth. The staff were approachable and knowledgeable. A gem of a castle. I would visit again when in the area of the Cotswolds.
  • A well preserved castle set in lovely grounds. In the summer they host various shows and events. Very expensive.
  • Beautiful gardens. Quite an idylic location... Worth visiting.
  • Beautiful castle and extensive grounds.
