Once you find it - it is excitingly badly signposted - this is a castle with no frills. No guides, no shop full of plastic tat, no one to charge you for parking. The remains of a Norman enclosure castle (so, no castle mound or...More

Lovely place to sit and reflect. The ruins are amazing with notes along the way so you know what was what. Great place to relax, read, have a picnic or have fun with the family. Free to get in was lovely. I sat and watched...More

What a fantastic village. Apart from the Medieval castle remains this beautiful place has pretty houses, pubs, churches, and even Roman Ruins, it really is a must visit if in the area. There are pretty villages all around this area and it makes for stunning...More

We went on a chilly winters day and whilst there is not a lot there it is easily combined with nearby Lullingstone Roman Villa. On a summers day it would be great for families and there is plenty of space for kids to run around...More

We popped in and stayed for ages. So much to explore. So much atmosphere. A hidden little gem of history.

Not well signposted, so when you get to Eynsford village take the small turning to the Village Hall (opposite the Castle Hotel) and you'll find the car park for the castle remains. We were pleasantly surprised with our visit here. You'll find the remains of...More
