Beautiful Gardens and a surprisingly great day out

I was surprised about how great a day out we had here. You approach on a mile long Beech tree lined avenue. There is ample parking and toilets in the car park. If you're not a fan... read more

A magical place which far exceeded expectations. Attention to detail and form is beautiful. Had a chat with a couple of the gardeners which gave a great insight into the workings of the Gardens. Fantastic views of the garden from above at the House.

I think best enjoyed on a good weather day. These are beautiful gardens that are well worth a visit, providing a good walk. Refreshments are available from the ticket shop but there is no cafe. Dogs are welcome.

This is well worth a visit if your in the area of Grief as the formal gardens are stunning, its nice to be able to sit on a seat which overlooks the gardens and just relax, no noise, utter peace.

Lovely gardens which look stunning from the castle walls. We have been several times and they are always spectacular. Be aware there is no restaurant/cafe.

These beautiful formal gardens include an intriguing 17th-century sundial, carefully trimmed box hedges forming intricate patterns of flower-beds, white marble statues and some formal water features. There is a medley of colour, everything is beautifully maintained, and it's a pleasant place to wander for an hour or two and relax. There are also well-stocked greenhouses (useful to retreat to when... More

The gardens are truly beautiful and beautifully kept. Visit the glass houses to see grapes and soft fruit growing. Always worth visiting and a lovely place to take visiting friends and family. Doggy friendly. Only down side is lack of café.

Early August the owners generously open these gardens for charity, when a pipe band, Scottish dancers, gun dogs and so on add to the experience. A visit at other times would offer some, but not overwhelming, interest. The view from the castle is very fine, but apart from the tended trees, shrubs, box hedging and some Victorian statuary there is... More
