50 acres of historic parkland set against the breath-taking 18th century Palladian Mansion house built as the Earl of Fortescue's family home, with temples, follies and stunning vistas. The formal terraces in front of the house allow your eye to capture the Triumphal Arch and Holwell Temple in the distance.

Just to let you know we had a wonderful day out yesterday at Castle Hill gardens. The grounds are kept so well and the features of interest are wonderful. It was my Dad's birthday treat and we all really enjoyed the day. Thank you so much for opening up your gardens/grounds to the public, it brings joy and peaceful times in the countryside, in the castle, follies and riverside walk. I will tell other members of my family about Castle Hill, I'm so pleased to have found this lovely place to walk and see so many interesting things. On Bank Holid...

Absolutely stunning. It was a glorious day and the gardens were at their best. The colours were still vibrant and at every turning we saw another amazing display of colour. We headed for the castle and reached it and really enjoyed our walk down.

We've had a lovely walk around the gardens. Plenty suitable for us even with a wheelchair. Had a lovely lunch here then tea and cake after our walk. Lovely ladies in kiosk. It is so beautiful here we will definitely return. A stunning display of camelias, rhodo's and azaleas and a sunny, blustery day to set them off. Lovely, surprising place, a pleasure to walk around even in a howling gale! Hot soup, bread & hot chocolate very welcome!
