Nunney Castle

It’s small. It won’t take you long to look round – about 15 to 20 minutes is plenty – but if you are in the area, Nunney Castle is worth a look. It’s free to enter, so you don’t need to worry about wasting money on somewhere so small. The castle itself has a proper water-filled moat and if you look closely you’ll see lots of fish. In the summer there are beautiful blue damselflies skimming the surface too.

The village is picturesque with an old church, and there is a fabulous cake shop with a selection of cakes to tempt your tastebuds. All in all it’s a great place to stop for an afternoon tea.
