Beautiful gardens to explore...
Sep 2021
The castle was closed but the gardens were fully accessible on this Saturday morning visit.
Grand lake, plenty of birdlife, trees and shrubs colours just starting to turn.
Grand history associated with this house and estate and the excellent guidebook provides the broader information.

Beautiful House and Gardens
Sep 2021
Spent an amazing half day at Sherborn Castle and Gardens. Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. The house is amazing and has been preserved incredibly well. Particularly enjoyed the beautiful paintings and furniture, it's like stepping back in time. The gardens are magnificent and the lake sets off the scene. This is a visit not to be missed.

Great historical interest with great walks
Aug 2021
Not over crowded for a bank holiday Monday.
Able to walk here from the holiday cottage we were staying in.
Very informative as we wandered through the rooms and lovely extensive grounds to wander around and view the lake.

Spent a wonderfully relaxing few hours in the Castle Gardens. Couldn’t want for more beautiful surroundings. An easy way to lose yourself in splendour. Lovely cup of tea and cake from the Tea room. Thanks to you all. Can’t wait to return.

Fantastic for amble around gardens on scooter
Aug 2021 • Couples
Wonderfully peaceful gardens. Big enough to get lost. Took my mobility scooter - didn’t go in the house. They suggest part of gardens are inaccessible for wheelchairs/ scooters and whilst I agree for wheelchairs it would be difficult dangerous , I was brave and went down a fairly steep slope! Scooter managed to get up easily with speed. Well worth it - beautiful views xx

Thank you very much for visiting us. I’m glad you enjoyed seeing the gardens on your scooter. We do allow scooters on the ground floor of the castle. We have a special access point to get in. Next time you come it’s well worth a visit. The inaccessible parts you can view on a video slideshow. Thank you so much for writing review and we look forward to seeing you here very soon.

A really good afternoon. Had lunch then went through the castle which was very good. You can see lots of the rooms which was much better than other castles/stately homes we have been to. Lots of info in the rooms and staff to ask. The gardens are lovely and easily take up a few hours. We were just about the last ones out after wandering through all of the lovely grounds. I recommend going to the old castle in the morning then here in the afternoon. Added bonus it is very reasonably priced too. Some castles and gardens are extortionately expensive - this was excellent value for money.
