An idyllic Welsh paradise
Don't miss our top garden spots
This curved border has three seasonal areas and is filled with shrubs and herbaceous plants.
Lady Margaret Myddelton planted it on her return after the Second World War as a low maintenance way to ensure seasonal colour and scents.
The hawk house was built in 1854 to an E W Pugin design. There used to be an 18th-century orangery on the same site.
It was originally a conservatory and Lord Howard de Walden added a thatched roof, so it could house birds of prey.
The shrub garden has year-round interest.
The late spring rhododendrons smell beautiful after a spring shower.
An early summer highlight is the handkerchief tree with its elegant white bracts.
In the autumn you can see rich toasty colours throughout.
We are truly spoilt with the gorgeous scenery surrounding the castle.
You can see several counties from the gardens.
Wander down to the terrace and on a clear day you can see the Pennines.
