Details

Set in the picturesque valley of the River Frome, nine miles from Bath near the border with Wiltshire. Farleigh Hungerford Castle was built in the 14th century and still has much for the visitor to enjoy and provides a great day out for families with children, couples and even walkers enjoying the beautiful surrounding countryside. This fortified mansion was occupied for 300 years by the remarkable Hungerford family and today their intriguing, yet sometimes gruesome stories are told through graphic interpretation panels and a free audio tour. There are many hidden treasures - the chapel with rare medieval wall paintings and family tombs; extensive displays in the Priest’s house; and for those who are brave enough to enter the crypt, there’s the best collection of human-shaped lead coffins in Britain.

Norton Saint Philip, Somerset. BA2 7RS.
