The Walled Castle Garden

The Walled Castle Garden is unique and completely irresistible. Since 1990, Simon Irvine and his staff have been digging, planting, composting and caring for. Every spring, they turn the earth by hand, carefully and methodically. Every autumn, a compost is piled under the walnut trees. The garden, with its different terraces and high stone walls, is an oasis to stop in during the castle visit.

A living resource

For several years now, the master gardeners have worked to transform the garden into the kitchen garden that it was once ment to be. The Walled Castle Garden is a living resource for the castle, with vegetables, spices and edible flowers. Moreover, everything is ecologically cultivated.

What is harvested is immediately carried down to the kitchen. Spices, salads, cabbage and beets – when this is served, it is as locally grown as it can get. Yet no traces can be seen in the flower beds; so rich is the harvest and so skilled are the gardeners.
