Maxstoke Castle

Maxstoke Castle, B46 2RD

Maxstoke Castle, situated 3 miles outside Coleshill in Warwickshire, is a fine example of a 14th century moated and fortified manor house, commissioned by Sir William de Clinton. The Castle's licence to crenellate dates from February 1345.

The house, which is surrounded by four acres of mixed formal and informal gardens, has been in the continuous ownership of the Dilke (later Fetherston-Dilke) families for over 400 years.

The Castle is private and not open to the public but once a year, usually in mid June, the Castle and Gardens are opened in support of local charities. Teas, plant and other stalls are provided.
