Our gardens are an equal delight for the aficionado and the amateur, serene and with scenic views of Lancashire.
The Wilderness Garden with its large, lush lawn fringed by a textured herbaceous border and beautiful topiary. Leading to the East Wing are the romantic Dorothy Steps and, just beyond the parapet walls, you can glimpse the ancient fairy-tale woodland.
A narrow doorway leads to the Rose Garden, the most formal and intimate area of the grounds. In high summer, magnificent roses dazzle the senses. The flowerbeds are formal, the yews clipped, the scents powerful.
The last doorway leads to the striking Ramparts Garden with its views over the castellation to miles of Lancashire countryside and, beyond that, the distant shimmer of the Irish Sea.
