Mock-Gothic castle sitting on the shores of Lake Windermere with turrets, towers and informal grounds
If you've children to entertain you'll be pleased to know the rooms may be empty of grand possessions but full of kids having fun in our dressing up and castle-building spaces, perfect for a wet day in the Lakes! There's plenty to do outdoors too, like rope swing, den-building and trails, in our family-friendly gardens and grounds.
Please note the castle is now closed. Our grounds are always open so come and enjoy those great winter views. We will re-open on Saturday 22 March.
Enjoy our grounds
Our grounds are open everyday of the year. Perfect for wintry walks - countryside or lakeshore, with spectacular views. Wrap up warm and get out and about this winter.
The boat that visits our jetty has stopped running but you can still visit by water - catch the car ferry from Bowness as a foot passenger and walk along the west shore trail.
