Superb castle

Amazing castle with loads of rooms to explore. Everyone had a great time from our 8 year old to nanny. A definite must visit attraction if you are staying in the Forest of Dean.

My four year olds love it here, they live the shop too, cafe is good but there's not much choice if you have an allergy (one of my kids has a cows milk protein allergy and can't have any cows milk products, it would be so nice if they had more free from options especially cakes covering dairy as well...

Stopped here in January. Whilst it was closed, you could get close enough to take a lot of photography externally of the castle. Free parking on the road in the lead up to the area.

Well worth a visit. The information at the castle means you are well informed and enough remains of the castle that you can see how it would have looked.

This is a nice castle with some interesting history. Mostly ruins, but the provided audio guide and the signage throughout brought the castle to life. Our boys enjoyed it as much as we did.
