Notice: Due to the wet weather over the winter our grass overflow parking is limited at the moment. This may cause delays at peak times but we will try to get you parked as quickly as possible.

Country house, romantic garden, 14th century moated castle - all in a beautiful wooded estate

Relax in our picturesque garden with the glorious backdrop of our fairytale castle. Venture into the wonderful woodland and parkland with over 770 acres to explore.  Discover the delights of our Victorian country mansion with its secrets and stories; you might meet our much loved cat in residence 'Puss Puss'.

Enjoy a delicious meal in our tea-room or bring your own food along to eat in our newly created woodland picnic area. Your day would not be complete without a visit to our shop, where you will find tasty local produce including our very own Scotney bitter and yummy honey made from our busy bees.

The estate is open all year, offering a variety of walks through our beautiful parkland, woodland and Hop farm.

Walk time

Our 780 acre estate is open and ready to be explored. With a mixture of parkland and woodland there really is something for everyone to enjoy, even the family dog as long as they are kept on a lead. You can buy a map of our trails from Visitor reception or download our parkland trail.

Celebrate with us

Couples can privately hire the castle for wedding ceremonies. We specialise in small weddings with an ideal guest number of 45-60.
