A magnificent marcher fortress built 700 years ago by Edward I, situated close to the Welsh border. It has continuously been lived in by the Myddelton family for the past 400 years. The beautiful gardens offer commanding views over the Cheshire/Shropshire plains.
Visit in spring to see the snowdrops and take woodland walks. Summer visitors enjoy a varied programme of events through the summer season – visit in June for the Knights and Princesses weekend or look out for Re-enactors in the Civil War weekend. There are opportunities for guided walks, bat walks and talks all through the summer.
