The HomePage will give > 2 hours forward notice of Garden Closure before Gardens Gates are closed to Visitors.

Due to the older trees in the arboretum our Gardens close if the Met Office reports wind gusts > 33 mph. This is for the safety of our visitors.

Visiting Time

We would advise that you allow your group at least 2 – 3 hours for your visit to Castle Ashby Gardens. However, why not also include a trip to the Rural Shopping Yard within the village of Castle Ashby where a variety of local crafts together with a delicatessen offering delicious treats to take home can be found.

You can get directions to find us from the contact page.
