Wentworth Castle Gardens
Our beautiful 500 acre estate has been in the care of the Wentworth Castle Heritage Trust since 2002. Wentworth Castle and Stainborough Park was formerly the seat of the Earl of Strafford and was home to the Vernon-Wentworth family until 1949. The estate includes around 60 acres of formal historic gardens, which reflect gardening fashions and developments of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. The highlight of the gardens is the newly restored Victorian conservatory.
In addition, there are 500 acres of parkland, including a deer parkand woodland trails, with atmospheric views and majestic follies, such as the splendid Stainborough Castle and the Rotunda. Please note, dogs are not permitted in the Gardens and must be kept on a lead in the parkland for the welfare of our sheep and deer. Other facilities include car parking, coach parking, a cafe, gift shop and an adventure playground. Our full events programme offers something for everyone throughout the year.
Heritage gardens and extensive deer park - open year round with café and gift shop. Gardens have interest in every season, romantic follies and fabulous views, plus miles of country paths. Dogs welcome on leads in deer park, but not in the Gardens.
