Immediately in front of the Castle are two walled gardens which have been laid out along medieval lines, but reduced somewhat in size and scale. The herb garden contains over fifty varieties of culinary and medicinal herbs, all of which were in common cultivation in the medieval period. These include betany, bugloss, yarrow, thyme, comfrey, tansy and loveage. This enclosed garden is a sun trap which heightens the aroma of many herbs, particularly in the early evening.
The private maze was planted in time to reach maturity for the year 2000 millennium celebrations.More than twenty five varieties of rose bush are planted in the gardens. The arbours, built from hazel and willow, are in keeping with the medieval period and make an ideal setting for wedding photographs
