The inside of the castle has been completely redisplayed with installations, open storage areas and a chance to get up close to the building work. Stroll around the Lutyen's designed terraced garden including a rose garden and Croquet Lawn. Or explore the winding paths leading down to Fingle Bridge, an ancient gorge teeming with wildlife.
