Details for Ripley Castle

Ripley Castle

Breathtaking Ripley Castle, is surrounded by wonderful gardens and commands stunning views across the National Park. The house and gardens are fascinating to explore and the tea room and gift shop are bursting with all manner of delights to enjoy.

A trip to Ripley Castle is a must if you are in the area. The Castle offers impressive scenery and is surrounded by plenty of things to do and see.

The Castle has remained in the same family for the past 700 years, that in itself is quite amazing and they are still in residence to this day and as the Castle is open all year round, come and find out the history of the family and this wonderful building.

The Walled Garden will require you to put your sun glasses on as the blaze of colour will brighten up your day depending on the time of year obviously and the scent will have your nose twitching in all directions.  The Hot Houses contain exotic plants you may never have seen before, so do come in and have a browse around.

Visit the Walled Kitchen Garden with its herbs and also a selection of rare veggies, for those who grow their own, you may get new ideas. And what about the pleasure grounds where the kids can let their hair down in the children's play area.

To enjoy the Castle to its full take a guided tour and enjoy the magnificent rooms such as the Oval Drawing Room, the Large Drawing Room, the Library, they are steeped in history but outside history is in another form.  The Deer Park which you must talk a walk through has Oak trees some of which are over 1000 years old and still stand proud today whilst wildlife runs around them, it is a great day out, so come and join in.
