Restormel Castle Castles
Surrounded by a deep moat and perched on a high mound, the huge circular keep of this castle, built at the turn of the 14th century, survives in good condition. Built as a symbol of wealth and status and once home to Edward, the Black Prince, it offers splendid views over the surrounding countryside. It's also a marvellous picnic spot.
Access to castle: The ground floor, from which the layout of the castle can be appreciated, is mainly grass and gravel. The battlements are cobbled and reached via a wooden staircase which is slippery when wet. Grounds: All accessible on smooth level grass. The sloping lawns are slippery when wet. .
