Bike, walk or climb − the choice is yours.
This late georgian house sits atop a walled park spanning over 400 acres of parkland and gardens which were developed over three centuries by the St. Ledger family. The house tours and guided walks there will take visitors through different gardening styles, which reflect the associated historical periods.
At the castle gardens take your time to make a journey through diverse surroundings from tranquil to serene, to mystical and magical places.
From the top of the castle you can take in the wonderful views of over 60 acres of sprawling parklands which include gardens, avanues, arboretums and waterways.
The beauty is ever changing with the seasons there, so no two visits will be the same. The array of garden walks offer something to see all year round in this constantly changing and evolving environment.
