Set against the dramatic backdrop of the castle ruins, these gardens combine age and splendour on a grand scale. Historic features include the 17th-century yew avenue and limestone escarpment, while recent additions by designer Dan Pearson include a stunning parterre, evocative ‘garden-in-the-ruins’ and new rose garden. Beyond are woodland trails and wildflower meadows to explore, all accompanied by majestic lakeland views.
