The main house is Gothic in style and not too old. There are fascinating rooms. The main event is the walk through the gardens to the original medieval castle which on first vista looks like something from a magic fairy tale. It is very photogenic....More

Not sure I would pay to visit but the gardens are really nice with old ruins of a house. Not sure I would call it a castle like they do. There are more interesting true castles closer by but as said the gardens and ruins...More

We visited during Easter holidays, so our children could take part in the Easter Egg Hunt. They thoroughly enjoyed running around and finding the purple boxes which led to them receiving a good sized chocolate egg at the end (not bad for £3 per child)....More

The "castle" part is a ruin with a moat around it and appropriately ancient. The house is more modern and open to the public to view. As the National Trust only took over the property in 2007, it was lived in until very recently. So...More

We visited Scotney Castle today on a cold and foggy Spring day. The house has lots of lovely antique furniture and the castle which has been left to ruin is still interesting to visit. The grounds are lovely and it will be truly a sight...More

A national trust property sat in wonderful grounds, the house is a contrast with the down stairs made to impress and the new 1970’s changes to the kitchen and up stairs bathrooms looking out of place. Which is what makes it fascinating as you wonder...More
