Stokesay Castle is the finest and best preserved 13th-century fortified manor house in England. It offers visitors a unique glimpse into a distant age, when strength and elegance were combined.

Set amid peaceful countryside near the Welsh border, Stokesay Castle forms an outstandingly picturesque group with its timber-framed gatehouse and the parish church.

An audio tour will help you to imagine Stokesay as the centre of medieval life. Its grounds include cottage-style gardens, a tearoom open from April to October, and a gift shop.

Weave a Web of Tales at Stokesay Discovery Visit

The building of Stokesay Castle was funded by riches from the local wool trade. Then the fortified house evolved, expanded and changed through the years. Local storyteller Sally Tonge takes you on a “story walk” through the castle, spinning yarns of textiles, cloths and treasures and undressing layers of history that shroud this fascinating site. Explore the notion of shifting history by sharing stories, imaginations and local folklore.
