The castle is in a lovely setting in a valley close to a small river. As you approach, it seems rather plain and forbidding with few windows or signs of decoration. All this changes on the inside with a wonderful Tudor porch, carved with the...More

used to cycle here as a boy and came back last week some 40 years later. Lovely old place with good views. Very limited parking and a 10 minute strol across fields reveal this hidden gem of a fortified Manor House. It was good to...More

Have visited Beaupre Castle 2 or 3 times. It is a very interesting fortified manor house in an out of the way location so is never going to be overrun with visitors to say the least. There is a fair bit to see and enjoy...More

Old Beaupre Castle is a hidden gem in the middle of nowhere, you have to park in a small layby and walk through fields, there were cows when we visited but they were fine. The castle is atmospheric with a beautiful porch front into the...More

A bit of a ruin, but plenty to explore. Numerous information plaques to help get a sense of the history of the place. Visited twice and been the only visitors on both occasions, worth the short walk across a couple of fields to get there.

Only a small, lovely trek required to get to this incredible hidden gem. I cannot emphasise how wonderful this castle is, especially the carved Renaissance porch. Loved it.

The castle itself is a bit decrepit but the walk there is nice. Good information plaques in each room. Castle is a bit misnomer, more like a mansion.

This place is the definition of "off the beaten track"! we had to ask directions from a local lady, who pointed us in the right place. Once we found Beaupre, it was so worth the effort! Look out for the sign for the castle while...More

As I had read the reviews below I actually found it easy to find! (Thanks Trippie!) A nice walk across fields to find, as said below about an hour in total. Don't go in the rain (it's totally exposed to the elements) or any icy...More
