Whilst passing through the area we stopped off to see the hawfinches. However to have any certainty of seeing them one needs to be there before the general public arrives at about 10.00. Facilities are good and parking easy.

This is a perfect way to spend a sunny day out, or equally a wet day in as there is the beautiful house to visit as well as the magnificent gardens to stroll through! Great for all age groups.

Firstly it rained!. So the magnificent tea room was an obvious stop. We then ventured to the castle . The castle was shut. My fault I did not know what day it was. (A day late). It opens at certain periods of the year. It stopped raining. We had a very informed enthusiastic volunteer guide to show us around the... More

We visited as the castle was on a walking route I had planned... And we weren't disappointed. We love old buildings and gardens... What made this stand out for us was The Stumpery.... Gardens planted around old tree stumps, laid out with a great variety of well labelled planting which gave us plenty of ideas for home... The house itself... More

Stopped off here on our way home from the Lake District in October so only the gardens were open. They were divided into several sections, none of them particularly big. The reflections in the large pond were good, and the colours of the acers were nice. We didn't have much time but after walking around all the gardens it didn't... More

Castle itself was closed but we had visited to have a refreshing walk. The weather was dry but chilly. We walked around the gardens, the fungi on the branches in the fern garden was very interesting. The swans were looking at home on the pond and it was good to see the garden in winter as last time we visited... More

Visited this lovely house and gardens but the Lakeland weather was against us! We tried to appreciate the vistas and the excellent trees and shrubs and the plentiful wild life but eventually scurried into the welcoming tearooms. I chose quiche and salad - quiche was warm and fresh a good sign, followed by coffee and cheesecake from the wide snack... More
