Adults £5 children over 5 £2
There will be takeaway refreshments on site, the village has shops and a tea room open for takeaways.
Dogs are welcome
We welcome well behaved dogs, but please keep them on short leads and clear up after them. There are some lovely walks around the garden that everyone including your four legged friends will enjoy.
Being built on a hill, disabled access to the castle is very limited, there are a number of tarmac paths, however they are mostly very steep to access, whilst we do our best to ensure we can provide some disabled parking this is very limited and is at the bottom of the drive – it does not take you up to the main house. The same applies to pushchairs, whilst you can (and I have) push a pushchair all the way around the garden, the paths aren’t really pushchair friendly although people do manage especially with the hardier types of pushchair.
Parking will be in the village. If you need to drop off others at the gates please feel free to do so.

There will be no talks and the castle drawing room will not be open.
Walled Garden Pottery
The Walled Garden Pottery studio & shop WILL be open for the weekend. Wyn Abbot is still working hard and you can buy her wonderful ceramics and art online, if you can’t make it – they will be working under strict Covid guidelines.
