Beautiful in the sunshine.

Cannot believe this little gem has been so close to me and I have only just discovered it!! Beautiful surroundings and a cheap day out - kids would love the meerkats! (as did i!!)

Lovely gardens, fab meerkat visit, relaxing lunch - not much more to say except well worth a visit and reasonably priced. Just one note, they are doing more improvements over the year, I just hope it does not get too commercial and ruins the whole feels of the place.

My family and I visited Castle Ashby 2-3 years ago. We had such a lovely day that we decided to visit again this year. In my opinion it offers excellent value for money if you have a family with young children.

My mum, nan and I decided to visit the gardens for a day out. I like taking photos so it was an ideal place to get plenty or nature/landscape shots. The place was easy to find and signposted quite well, although we used a sat nav anyway. Upon arrival, the lady on the counter was very very pleasant, friendly, helpful... More

We wanted an afternoon out, and having never been to Castle Ashby, it was an obvious choice! We wandered around the garden with our dog, beautiful! We sat in the garden for cream tea, delicious, and the sun even shone for the whole afternoon! Thoroughly recommended!

We spent a lovely day walking around the gardens which are maintain beautifully. Plenty of areas to sit and benches for picnics. The play area was good too. We also used the tea room facilities. My son (ages 5) liked looking at the vegetable patch and the animals. The only disappointing part was the lack of toilet facilities. One set... More

Very pleasant place to go to to wander round and have a spot of lunch or for tea. There is not a great deal to do here other than to llook round the gardens, but if the weather is nice then it can be a nice way to spend an hour befor going for tea..
