Croft Castle

Croft Castle is a late 17th-century house with fine Georgian interiors and a family connection dating back more than 1,000 years.

There are restored walled gardens, stunning views over the Welsh Marches and miles of marked walks. It is renowned for its fine parkland, which contains more than 300 veteran trees – including a magnificent avenue of Spanish chestnuts.

A walk through the woodlands reveals the Iron Age hill fort at Croft Ambrey, which commands views over fourteen of the old counties.

Facilities at Croft Castle inclue a tea room and plant sales.
