Outside the walled garden, a meandering path leads through the ‘American Garden’, a 100m mixed border of trees, shrubs and herbaceous perennials before bringing you into the impressive 18th century designed landscape outside the Castle containing many mature hardwood trees.

This regionally significant Castle and its outstanding garden and landscape attract around 50,000 visitors a year; a competent and enthusiastic gardener is required to complete and compliment the staff structure.
