About the garden

The world-famous garden, overhung with clipped yews, shelters rare and tender plants. Laid out under the influence of Italian and French styles, it retains its original lead statues and an orangery on the terraces. High on a rock above the terraces, the castle, originally built circa 1200, began life as a medieval fortress.

One of my favourite National Trust properties. The gardens are amazing, the views are incredible and the castle history is fascinating. It is nice to go again and again and watch how the gardens change over the seasons. Had a lovely jam and cream scone sat in the sunny courtyard. I always find that the staff are very friendly and helpful. Definitely worth a visit.

Brilliant Day out with lots to see. This is especially good if you are a National Trust member otherwise you will have to pay the entry costs. The Gardens are the main attraction especially on a dry day. However there are lots more to see in the castle so also a good day out if it's raining

This is an absolutely fantastic place, The architecture, the beauty of the place and the gardens are absolutely stunning. The size of the place! It's huge and the grounds are extensive! We had an amazing day at a very reasonable price. The only downside was that we ate in the main cafe which was a very big disappointment. The food had to be sent back several times and they'd even missed bringing us another dish. (That wasn't to dampen the beauty of the place though.

Fantastic castle and grounds. Great place to spend a few hours. Came for Easter egg-hunt and trail. Volunteers very helpful and informative. Loved the gardens , beautiful flowers and sculpted hedges and trees. Lots of different areas to explore.

Lovely day out. Very impressive house and gardens. Fantastic views and the gardens where in full bloom and a riot of colour. Glad we travelled out to see the place. Well worth it if you're in the area. Friendly and knowledgeable staff/volunteers. Excellent tea room with high quality home made food. The Peacock stalking the grounds is partial to cake and scones and doesn't always wait to be invited to tea!
