A nice attraction where you can just wander, take in the views and enjoy life! Parts of the castle restored and the recent history of the occupiers was very interesting. Free entry when we went

Visited Caldicot Castle with while staying with my parents on a visit to UK. Loved the casual atmosphere, and the summery feeling of the historic place, with kids running around in the sun and families having picnics in the sunshine.

With free parking and no admission costs, I wasn't expecting much from Caldicot Castle. It's great, though. Parts of the original, thirteen century walls are ruined, but the gatehouse was restored by a wealthy Victorian and there's a wealth of history to explore. We went...More

We saw dogs inside on our visit....not sure if they would be allowed inside the rooms though. Lots of lovely walks for them in the grounds :)
