Eastnor Castle

Eastnor Castle

Eastnor Castle is a magnificent Georgian Castle dramatically situated in the foothills of the Malverns, near Ledbury, Herefordshire and is surrounded by a beautiful deer park, lake and arboretum. The castle is still the home of the Hervey-Bathurst family and its lavish interiors contain medieval armour, fine art and a Gothic Drawing Room designed by A.W.Pugin.

In the grounds there is plenty to do for all ages including an adventure playground, junior obstacle course, knight’s maze, treetop walkway, woodland play area, lakeside and woodland walks. The arboretum contains the finest collection of Cedars in Britain and has tree trails and rope swings.

There is a Kitchen cafe serving light lunches, tea, coffee and cakes, an ice-cream parlour and a large picnic area with tables on the Valley Lawn.

Eastnor Castle is proud to be a dog-friendly venue where dogs are welcome both inside the castle and around the grounds. There is a 'dogs off leads' area and a dog wash on the way out.

Events are held at Eastnor Castle throughout the year; details of these can be found on the website.
