Walk up to Castle we zig zagged it is worth the walk amazing views! Take a couple of hours over it as we did stopping off at a few weird things en route. Recommend the savoury tea with super watmed cheese scones. Great tea

Lovely walks up through flower laden woodland paths to the castle on the top of the hill then back down though beautifully laid out trees and shrubs.

This is a lovely spot to relax and walk through the grounds with lots to see - good view from the little castle on the hill top towards Lundy and the cave near the river. The grounds are peaceful and nice with lots of flowers...More

Gorgeous place - I visited in September and really enjoyed it despite the garden not being in full bloom. The scenery is fabulous and the walks are really relaxing. The gardens have something for everyone - streams, flowers, castle, majestic house, wondrous trees and gentle...More

We had limited time but were still able to walk through the gardens and up to the "Castle" which had great views. I wish we had been able to stay for afternoon tea!

Due to the poor weather forecast we seemed to be the first visitors on Sunday lunchtime in early September, and after coffee in the tea hut we set off round the gardens. The Millenium Garden was still looking lovely and the walled gardens were interesting....More
