Mousecastle wood is a predominately native broadleaved ancient woodland site located approximately one mile north-east of Hay-on-Wye Herefordshire. The wood is crowned by the remains of a medieval motte and bailey scheduled monument known as Mouse Castle. A well known feature of the local landscape Mousecastle can be seen from Hay on Wye. The site is well served with permissive and public rights of way providing walkers with a linear route through the woodland.
