The Finest Gardens In The North
The romantic gothic castle - a product of the early 19th century - stands on a high rise above a lake. The castle is surrounded by sweeping lawns and a variety of mature trees, including Cedars of Lebanon, Oak, and Chestnut. The gardens surrounding the castle provide a lovely mix of colour and height, with intriguing walks around the lake. There is a Temple Water Garden, Rose Garden, a variety of mixed borders. Plantings are planned to provide colour at all times of the year.
While away a summers afternoon listening to The Robin Joiner Quartet performing a varied repertoire including music by Gershwin, Cole Porter, Mancini and Jobim.
