Tucked in the middle of this picturesque Somerset village, taking the visitor completely unawares, is this tiny but perfectly formed little castle in its moat. The village of Nunney is small and pretty, with stone houses backing onto a fast-flowing little river. A few yards...More

In my experience it is rare to find a moat with water still in it which was incredible. The amount of the castle still standing made it worth the visit.

We walked right up and were able to see inside the castle. Neat experience! Nunney is such a cute place and this is an interesting sight to see.

Visited Nunney whilst in Frome. The village itself is very quaint and the castle is very impressive with a deep moat all around it. Walking round the village and exploring the castle in the sunlight was a excellent way to spend a couple of hours.

A free attraction. Nunnery Castle has a moat full of water all around it which you can cross a bridge to the castle ruins. Most of the outside walls are still there which make it very interesting. Then and visit to the Moat & Turret...More
