Get active - miles of trails
Come and enjoy our beautiful new multipurpose trail network. The network of 22 miles (35km) of trails has upgraded 10 miles (15.5km) of existing paths and provides 12 miles (18.5km) of new trails.
There is no better way of appreciating this beautiful demesne than by exploring on foot.
With 2 miles (3km) of new pedestrian only trails whether you are looking for a gentle stroll or an energetic hike, there are countless places to discover at Castle Ward.
Cycling is a enjoyable and environmentally friendly way to visit Castle Ward. Our new cycle trails will make it easier for your family to explore beautiful parts of the demesne. Clearsky Adventure Centre, located on the property, have bikes available for hire.
We have cycle parking on site for those who want to enjoy a car free day.
Victorian Pastime Centre
Visit our Victorian Pastime Centre in the Stableyard and dress up as a Victorian boy or girl. Play some of Master Ward’s Victorian games such as diabolo and pecking chickens.
Dont forget to visit the Laundry in the Stableyard where family, visitors and servants’ clothes would have been washed. Our tack room displays saddles and bridles used by the family and the working horses.
Adventure and woodland playground
Our adventure and woodland playground will keep the children occupied for hours. Older children can enjoy thrilling rides on zip line, fly down the mega slide and relax on the bucket wing while the younger children enjoy our woodland playground. Bring along a picnic and enjoy lunch right beside the playgrounds.
The kids won’t want to leave.
