Cardinham Castle

Cornwall Information & Accommodation Guide


Cardinham Castle dates from the 11th century and is located south of Cardinham village.

There is little of the original structure remaining.
The earthwork consists of a motte and bailey.

The castle was founded by Richard fitz Turold.

The motte and its south-eastern bailey, stands at a strategic point at the end of a steep-sided spur above a confluence of streams.

No trace of the entrance and the north-south double bank remain. The motte has been severely damaged by surface stone digging.

Please gain permission from the landowner before visiting.
Car parking is available beside the road.
