This is a beautiful village with the imposing castle ruins in the background. A very interesting visit with boards telling you about the place.

Ruined, with a moat, this little castle is romantic, in a great setting hidden in plain sight in the middle of Nunney Village. Enchanting, even in early March.

Costs nothing to visit it is tucked away in the charming village of nunney. We visit here for a bit of a wander and it gives a chance for our little one to get a bit of a runaround... Lovely in any weather (just be careful of the moat which is filled with water!) Great for wildlife too at anytime... More

Nunney Castle is a lovely little castle in the pretty village of Nunney. It's set right in the heart of the village with a tea room very nearby and an excellent pub, The George, just a short walk away. The castle is surrounded by a moat and can be accessed by a footbridge at the rear of the building. Although... More

Visited here today and spent about 40 minutes looking around the ruins of the castle. Only 1 main information board to tell you about the castle itself and not much else, but it's free, so you cannot expect much for nothing? Nunney is a pretty little village and worth a short walk around to see the architecture.

great half day visit stacks of history and the rest of the village supports it well. Lunch in the pup is a must and east up the hil from the castle there is a play area that you can let the kids run wild.

A gem in Nunney - worth taking the family for a wander around after a lovely lunch in the nearby George.

Lovely looking small castle with a moat surrounding it, walking around is rather peaceful. Inside the ruins you can still see where the rooms floor and stairs were and can imagine how people got around. Not your average large castle but a little stunner pretty setting and always look forward to seeing it if in the area.

A lovely little castle - we stopped off for about 45 minutes while the children ran around in their make believe world - it is lovely with a moat and a little bridge. Perfect for a short stop off.
