This 14th century moated castle in Sussex is one of the National Trust's most visited properties. You will see spiral staircases, battlements and the castle's original wooden portcullis, an extremely rare example of its kind. You can also listen to an interesting talk about medieval life from one of the authentically dressed medieval characters in the castle.
The grounds are particularly lovely with wide lawns, views of the moat and the River Rother. Also look out for bats roosting in the castle structure.
The Sussex Border Path long distance walking trail runs past the castle so you could pick this up and walk east to Northiam if you wanted to continue your walk.
