We have visited Castle Ashby many times over the years, but this was our first time back there since the garden centre and tea shop opened. We went on Easter Monday and were surprised at the number of cars parked in the car park and over flow car park. We had to queue for about 10 minutes or so to... More

The area you drive into is reasonably large for parking which is next to a good sized cafe which has both inside and outside under cover seating, a small but adequate children's play area and a couple of gift shops. Quite quiet, the car park and children's play area are free but you will need to pay for access to... More

Not as nice as it used to be, but still a fun visit, especially if you enjoyed 'Love in a Cold Climate'

Great place to walk with the dogs - there are areas where the dogs can be off their leads. The quality of food and service in the Cafe is good.
