Surviving range of a 14th century fortified manor house, considerably altered subsequently. Built of roughly coursed ashlar with thatched roofs. Originally a first floor hall, but altered and extended in the 17th century.
Now owned and restored by The Landmark Trust. Available for holiday lettings.
This Castle was built by Guy de Brian, in the reign of Edward III. Its present possessor is Lord Ilchester, who has restored what was possible with great care. (Castles Of England, Sir James D. Mackenzie, 1896)
