    Small but worth a visit
    It is a beautiful hidden gem with lots of history. The Castle is lovely with a moat surrounding it. It's not huge, but you have a lovely old village/hamlet with a quaint church. The little Cafe was lovely and very friendly.

    Love a castle and this has a moat!!
    We belong to English Heritage and this was near Stonehenge so couldn’t resist. It’s free to visit so you don’t need to be a member. The village it sits in is also worth a visit. Very quaint. One pub in the middle, a river running through and a lovely church. Parking could be an issue but we managed to find somewhere close to the castle. This medieval castle weirdly sits in the middle of this village but at one time I imagine it sat quite naturally. Through a little gate And along the circular path Nunney Castle is a ruined but English Heritage does a great job of providing an illustration of what living there might have been like. Across a draw bridge and you are at the front door of the castle. Port holes, old fire places, window seating and ruined stairs can been seen whilst roaming the castle walls. If it’s your thing and you are in the area I’d recommend the visit. It’s doesn’t take long to walk around and it’s great for the imagination.

    Pretty
    I visited after viewing Stourhead House & Gardens which is just 20 minutes away. This pretty little castle is free, and is only worth 15 minutes of your time. (NB: There is parking about 5 minutes away and a cafe nearby.) Pretty 14thC ruined castle with a pretty moat.

    Nunney Castle - feast for the photographer
    Beautiful castle with lots of character. Feast for the eyes and the keen photographer. Being able to walk within the walls gave a sense of space and volume. Nunney Castle is the centre of a beautiful village. Free to enjoy by young and old.

Lovely ruins of Nunney castle which includes a moat.

The scenery is beautiful and the village has a lovely little church and a nice walk along the public paths.

The car park is not very large but is free, just like the castle.

If you are travelling this way, it is definitely worth a visit 😍

It's a medieval castle with a moat around it. And a drawbridge. All you see are the ruins but with so much history and in such pretty surroundings in a very picturesque village. We'll worth a visit.

Amazing hidden little gem, lovely pub just opposite the castle, which is well worth a visit. Castle ruins are something really special and we took some really lovely photos with the moat and castle as a back drop.

What a lovely castle worth the drive
The setting is magical and the most is full of fish
We spent about an hour here and then visited the pub which was also great.

We visited the castle during the annual Nunney Street Fayre. We enjoyed listening to the music from a variety of artists which were playing throughout the day.

Had to endure some single track roads as Sat Nav struggled with this but it was worth the hassle. Not suitable for disabled
