Grimsthorpe Castle

Grimsthorpe Castle Gardens

The historic Grimsthorpe Castle has beautiful gardens and lovely views

Grimsthorpe with its lovely gardens has been the home of the de Eresby family since 1516, when it was granted by Henry VIII to the 10th Baron Willoughby de Eresby on the occasion of his marriage to Maria de Salinas, kinswoman and lady-in-waiting to Queen Catherine of Aragon. 
The formal flower and topiary garden leads imperceptibly into the woodland garden, and provides a fine setting for the ornamental vegetable garden and orchard, created in the 1960’s by the Countess of Ancaster and Peter Coates.
Intricate parterres marked with box hedges lie close to the Castle, and a dramatic herbaceous border frames views across the lake.
