We've visited here a couple of times and love it. It's English Heritage and not cheap but it is worth a visit. There's a decent shop and a lovely church next door which completes the setting. Only disappointment was that the café was advertised as...More

The weather was not great, but the visit, staff and audio tour was. We enjoyed the the tour, history and background. Four stars and not five as prices in the shop are a bit steep.

Stokesay Castle is a fascinating place. Dating from the late 13th century the buildings still show 13th and 14th century design and materials along with 17th and 19th century modifications. There is a moat walk which we did first and got a good idea of...More

The castle, gatehouse and church are all beautiful buildings in a lovely setting. It felt really peaceful here as we walked around with only a handful of other visitors. But I think it is very expensive for the size and what's available. There are no...More

This castle is nestled in the valley and has been well preserved. It’s well worth a visit especially if you have the audio tour which gives you a lot of background information.

Apart from the Castle being a very interesting site to visit (do take advantage of the audio tape to listen to) there is a splendid cafe adjacent to the car park. Open daily through the Summer months, weekends only during Winter. We went there for...More

Lovely castle with a story to tell. You can pay for the history and listen whilst you walk round which is cheap and well worth it. You can even have a coffee at the coffee shop after.

Spent a very pleasant 90 minutes exploring this fortified Manor House near Craven Arms. Audio guide and £3.50 guide book help make the most of the history which was fascinating. Also enjoyed a coffee in the nearby cafe afterwards.
