THE SECRET GARDEN - In 1979 the secret garden was created to celebrate the marriage of Lord and Lady Ashcombe. There are yew hedges on one side and a garden wall on the other.
The garden was replanted in 2012 to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the birth of Queen Katherine Parr (Henry VIII's sixth wife).
Next we ventured over to the WHITE GARDEN - It is thought that there used to be a covered link between the castle and the chapel, that Queen Katherine Parr walked. It wasn't very white when we were there, though. The garden is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, and has white roses, peonies, and other flowers.
THE RUINS GARDEN - The ruins garden is filled with boughs of ancient sycamores, roses and clematis growing up and down the walls of the ruins of the Banqueting House. The Banqueting House is where all of the meals were eaten and was a separate building from the main castle.
THE TITHE BARN GARDEN -This former barn dates back to the 15th century. It was filled with sycamore, foxglove, cyclamen, primroses, wild roses and more. It was really a nice setting. Here's a short video that we made inside the ruins of the Tithe Barn Garden.
