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.

Stokesay is really a manor house and castle. Not expensive to enter and there is a good audio guide that gives very interesting information, not only about the buildings but life in medieval times.

You can take dogs within the grounds, but they can't go inside the castle.
