Surrounded by sweeping gardens, the different areas are planted to provide‚ a stunning mix of colour all year around. It is a perfect location to walk around with a Lakeside and Nature trail amongst the grounds. Many love to visit The Temple Garden with its lake and two islands – it’s a beautiful sight framed by blossom trees in the spring. During the summer months, The Rose Garden gives off a beautiful scent and you can also explore The Walnut Grove, The Arboretum and Tower Hill – the latter giving a spectacular view of the surrounding countryside.
As well as relaxing walks through the stunning estate, it’s a great place to spend an afternoon with the family. Including the Children’s Den which is a natural play area perfect for exploration amongst wildlife. Complete with wood carvings, secret hideaways, a bug hotel and log seating. There’s also a more traditional play area with fantastic views of the Mere and Castle, and a further play area situated just below the castle.
