Visitors from all over the world have been attracted to its outstanding collections of art and furniture, connection to Sir Walter Raleigh and to admire Capability Brown’s landscape.
Our Grade I listed Garden was one of Capability Brown’s first commissions giving us a magnificent English Landscape Garden which survives largely unaltered today.
Splendid day out!A beautifully preserved castle and grounds. Excellent information on the history of this lovely home. The castle is privately owned and the staff are employed by the owners; staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. A real treat.
Stunning gardensThe house is magnificent but the gardens alone deserve a lot of exploratory time. Designed by Capability Brown the gardens centrepiece is a magnificent lake. Leave plenty of time to appreciate the beauty of what’s here. A must see if you are in the area.
Fantastic experienceWe had a brilliant day here. Loved the house with all the family history and also that of Sir Walter Raleigh. Really enjoyed the walk around the beautiful grounds, what a fantastic place.
