Another little treasure, great audio tour, beautiful location, wonderful historic property that had been very well preserved.

Plenty of picnic places as well as the cafe, which we didn't try.

Really helpful staff and reasonably well stocked shop

On the way back from Stiperstones we stopped off at Stokesay Castle. The whole place is enchanting and historically informative. Visually stunning it is a walk back in time. Make sure you take up the opportunity of the free audio guide which was superb. While we were there activities for children were going on all the time. The facilities for eating and resting are excellent and add to the charm of the day. A superb place to study and learn about the past.

Of all the attractions we visited in Shropshire and surrounds, this little castle/large manor house was my favourite. It is beautiful. As you park and walk in through the church and then the gatehouse and finally into the castle itself, you are taken back in time. The castle is well preserved and the free audio brings it to life. Although it was school holidays when we visited, the place was relatively quiet, so we were able to sit in most rooms and halls by ourselves and just imagine what it had been like to live there. I would love to visit again!

A lovely little Castle, snuggled up against the Welsh hills. Very well preserved and with a helpful audio guide free of charge. Activities for children . Lovely gardens and an interesting church next door. A lovely way to spend a morning.
