For our guests who prefer to relax there are some fabulous alternatives within our grounds.
Originally created circa 1814 by the eccentric 15th Earl of Shrewsbury the park gardens are designed in an eclectic style. They were originally opened to tours for the public to fund renovation works on the house. Today they still provide a wonderfully relaxing place to take some time out and admire the views alone or with friends and family.
Garden tours with our head gardeners are very popular and run throughout the winter opening dates, but check in advance.
The Towers are the main historic house ruins which have a long history dating back to the Norman era. Originally a castle, then a Stately Home and a Shooting Range they are partially open to guests throughout most of the season. The only exception to this is events which utilise the Towers such as Scarefest. Check before you visit.
There are many gentle rides, small attractions, and character shows. Take a look at our website and resort maps for more information.
