Wilton Castle is for sale: fortress home with moat and even a dungeon are all yours for £1.5m

Wilton Castle

A five-bedroom house is also included in the asking price of this grade I-listed fortress near Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire, and Lord and Ladyship titles are up for grabs, too. If you ever find yourself yearning for a haven from modern life, where better than a castle with its own moat – and dungeon – to deter unwelcome visitors?

Although castles are famously draughty and generally uncomfortable, hidden behind the walls of this £1.5 million, grade I-listed fortress near Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire lies a five-bedroom manor house and manicured gardens.

Should you wish to feel even more a master of all you survey, the title of Lord of Wilton Castle is available to purchase separately.

On the ground floor of the house you’ll find a drawing room, study, cosy sitting room and grand 23ft dining room with fireplace.

Set for a medieval banquet, the kitchen complex includes a utility room, walk-in pantry and even a scullery-bakery with bread oven and stairs down to the dungeon.
