Scotney Castle gardens are nice to wander around as the seasons change through the year. In the spring there are lots of daffodills to see and there is a beautiful Magnolia tree just inside the entrance as you go down the pathways towards the Castle. The castle is surrounded by a moat and has a boathouse which would of housed a boat which the resident family would of used. The property is now owned by the National Trust. In the summer months wisteria grows over the 14th century ruins making it rather attractive. It is a popular place to visit and has a reasonably priced tea room/cafe and shop.One can now visit the New house which is on a level withthe car park. Wheelchair acess is possible but because of the steep paths you'd need to be strong to get back to the top of the hill. As I live nearby I go sometimes just to sit in the gardens in the sunshine and relax.
