The castle’s 35 acres of grounds offer enjoyment in every season, with a courtyard rose garden, orangery, lake, woodland walks and a conceptual garden featuring an Egyptian-themed grass maze. Spring displays of daffodils, cherry blossom and bluebells are followed by summer-flowering peonies, lavenders, roses and more. The sweeping lawns are ideal for picnics.
