  • Croft House is a fantastic old "house". The rooms were well labelled and knowledgeable volunteers were on-hand to answer questions. You were allowed to touch items and sit on furniture (even play a piano and try your hand at 1950s games)! All rooms and decorations/furniture had descriptions. You couldn't access the entire house as there are still residents in some areas of the house; but there was still plenty to explore. Make sure the kids get the seek-and-find pamphlets! The whole family enjoyed being able to "pretend" it was our house! The grounds are expansive and there are numerous walking trails; the Old Tree (1000 year old Oak!) walk was amazing. You could easily spend half a day here.
  • Just been on a guided Geology tour of the Croft Castle Estate. What a great day. The people who led the tour were from the local geological society and they make Geology very interesting. The limestone under your feet was laid down 400 million years ago and you can see the imprints of fossils. From the top of the Iron Age hill fort you can see into Wales on a clear day.
  • The castle itself was lovely. Very cosy for an aristocratic abode! The restaurant, however, was disappointing. Very few and uninspiring choices for lunch. Later, (around 3pm) when my friends and I fancied our usual cream tea, they'd run out of scones! Over the past 3 years, the food offered at National Trust properties does not stand comparison with previous years. In the past, locally produced fresh food has been the order of the day. No longer, as far as I can judge. Standards are slipping.
  • This is a lovely site hidden away which is in a well kept environment, which gives you a good sense of what the building is like. The castle is lovely inside and the staff here are very welcoming and love to chat, so don't hold back on asking any questions. There are many things to see here, with lots of walking routes and a nice tea room for when you are peckish!
  • Really worth a visit. The grounds are fabulous and castle is very interesting. Large tea room. Great play area for children. Lots of walks around the park land.
