National Trust property and we found it well worth a visit. Does have a coffee shop. The guides in the rooms were very helpful in explaing things.

We visited the gardens in April and were amazed by the colours and the layout of the garden. The rock garden is delightful and the new stumperie which features huge tree stumps artictically arranged and surrounded by ferns and plants was magnificent.

Informative guides and a very good 'feel' of the history of the estate. Good easy walks surrounding the castle with a great deal of wildlife to be seen. A well priced café which provides good value for money.

Just got back from an amazing Ranger led Hawfinch spotting special. Great explanation and knowledgable insights into this beautiful bird. If you want to see hawfinches, this is the place- coffee and bacon sandwiches complete the experience - thanks to the guide Robert Pocklington.

The gardens are lovely to walk round. The staff were very helpful and a great tea room for a meal or a snack. It was easy to park but a bit of a rough path to the castle.

When we visited the castle was closed but we enjoyed the gardens. It is £6.50 per adult so very well priced for a national trust property. You are provided with a map when you pay and the staff are helpful and point you in the...More

This NT property is less than a 5 minute drive from Levens Hall and it's well worth combining the two visits for the same day. At £10.50 it's some £3 cheaper than Levens which is good value in comparison because the house is of more...More

Yes: photos are now allowed everywhere inside the House but not with flash. This includes the Inlaid Chamber where photography was formerly forbidden.
