“Perfection nestled in the heart of Ross-on-wye”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

We found this slightly tricky to find, but ever so glad we did. My husband, 8 yr old son and I spent nearly two hours exploring the magnificent gardens and interesting ruins. It's a perfect spot to soak up the sun, let the children play and have very good tea and cake. The owner was superbly informative and have me some handy gardening tips! We have found a Sunday afternoon favourite.

“Fantastic place, hidden gem nicely sums it up!”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

This is a truly wonderful place, OK it was a very sunny day when we visited, but the welcome was friendly & informative, the gardens well kept and all the roses seemed to be in bloom so we were surrounded by colour & scent. We sat on a seat overlooking the river for quite a while marvelling at how speciai this place is - go if you are in the area!

Entrance is free if you are members of English Heritage.

“A "TRUE" Hidden Gem”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We arrived just before opening time, and were welcomed in. Very nice people.
I Have been through Ross on Wye, Loads of times, and did not know about this place.
Fortunately, when we visited, it was sunny, and we were the only visitors!
So when looking around, it was like it was our place, Interesting old place, super gardens.
I can see why it would make a good wedding reception venue, Well worth a visit

“Stunnig flower displays”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Very rarely open to visitors, this castle ruin is steeped in history and the owners share the history with you so eloquently, The flowers in the gardens are absolutely stunning and you cap of the visit with a very English Tea and cake experience,
