Spring colour at Croft Castle

Rose buds blooming at Croft Castle in Herefordshire

The gardens at Croft look magnificent in June, with sweet peas, peonies and roses all in full bloom. Catch the bluebells while you can at the end of April and throughout May; our native British bluebells create blankets of blue in the wood pasture and along the carriage rides in Fishpool Valley.

The gardens at Croft look particularly beautiful in late-spring, with an abundance of colour along the borders and bursts of pink, blue, green and purple in the walled garden.

Pack up a picnic and relax on the deckchairs in the walled garden, see what plants are for sale in the glasshouse and follow a family trail though the gardens during May half-term.

All the spring blooms make the gardens a haven for wildlife, including bees and butterflies. Take a seat on the south terrace for far-reaching views or lose yourself in the secret garden. See who's checked in to the bug hotel in the walled garden and pop your head inside the garden room for more historical information.

The gardens are worth a visit all year round and are perfect for the whole family; paths in the walled garden are wheelchair and pushchair friendly and we also welcome well-behaved dogs on leads.
