The Home of Welsh Castle Life: Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the Castle’s exciting past. Caldicot Castle’s impressive structure is surrounded by an idyllic 55 acre Country Park. You will be able to travel through time and discover the home of Welsh castle life, from medieval times to the twentieth century. The castle was developed as a fortress by Royal hands in the Middle Ages and restored as a Victorian family home. The river Nedern winds its way through the park and the wildlife pond is home to a variety of wildfowl.

With the weather so unpredictable we wanted to do something cheap and cheerful that would allow my son to get out and about, exploring. We have been here multiple times over the years and its always a nice bit of time out of the house....More

Don’t make a day trip of it unless you’re going to a special event held there, like a food festival. The castle itself is nothing compared to the other castles around. It used to be apartments where people lived.

Beautiful Castle - Free to walk around the outside. There is also a nature reserve and we took a lot of beautiful photos for my Thai girlfriends blog/account of Wales.

Nice for a stroll around and has picturesque countryside, the castle itself is not the best castle in the world but is starting to host some pretty big artists such as little mix which is pretty exciting- looking forward to seeing more of this!

Unlike many of the other castles in Wales, this one isn't a complete ruin. In fact, it's still lived in. The gatehouse, and its imposing twin towers, sets you on a path of adventure that is the equal of anything else in this area. Great...More

We saw dogs inside on our visit....not sure if they would be allowed inside the rooms though. Lots of lovely walks for them in the grounds :)

There is a free car park just inside the grounds, next to the castle and children's park area.
