The formal terrace, aligned east-west, was designed by Lloyd Hesketh Bamford-Hesketh in the 1830s and was inspired by Queen Eleanor’s garden at Conwy Castle. The central raised beds are constructed out of handmade nineteenth-century Welsh bricks and radiate from the central pool. Lloyd also incorporated into his design that the garden be viewed by moonlight so the planting featured many white and silver plants.

Where to next – Melon House

One of the earliest parts of the castle, this building has had many uses, including growing melons and pineapples during the 1840s. Its last use was during the early twentieth century as gardener’s sheds and workshops.
