Superbly sited, high above the River Wye, Goodrich Castle is still largely intact and protected by wide and deep ditches cut into the rock. This magnificent red sandstone castle, with a 12th century keep standing three stories high and extensive remains from the 13th and 14th centuries, looks across the beautiful Wye Valley to Symonds Yat.
