Family Fun


A wonderful day out awaits children of all ages. From child friendly guided tours of the Castle, to a playground in the Walled Garden, a cycle path and woodland or riverside walks; there's a world of adventure and wildlife to discover.


With a flying fox, swings and monkey bars to name but a few, the children really will have a ball in the playground. The lawn is surrounded by benches so you can sit back, relax and watch the children have a great time. The playground can be found in the Walled Gardens and refreshments and treats for both parents and children can be found in the Terrace Café and enjoyed at the outdoor tables nearer the playground.

Why not bring your bikes and enjoy the meandering cycle path throughout the grounds? or come along to one of our inspiring seasonal events. There’s something for all of the family to enjoy. Keep an eye on our website to stay up to date with all of our latest events!

We are a family friendly attraction and offer kids adventures with our playground, special activities and café menus. Children under 16 go free when accompanied by an adult.

Dogs on leads are very welcome throughout the grounds and gardens (no dogs inside the castle please).
There are tie up / water points, treats and alfresco dining at the Terrace and Courtyard Cafes so they needn’t be shut in the car.

Dining: The Terrace Café situated at the Gardens is open daily all year round. The Courtyard Café is located at the Castle and open daily from 1st May to 30th September.
