Castle Ashby – the Perfect Setting for Celebrations and Events
Built in 1574, Castle Ashby is the magnificent ancestral home of the Compton family. Located in the heart of a 10,000-acre working estate, the house and gardens can be found nestled amidst two hundred acres of beautiful parkland designed by Capability Brown.
There are 35 acres of gardens at Castle Ashby, including the romantic Italian Gardens, the impressive Orangery and stunning Arboretum planted with seeds collected from around the world. Adjacent to the gardens is the extensive 4-acre walled garden with its stone walls and adorned gates.
The gardens are accessed from the south via a road that runs parallel to the ‘Grande Avenue’, which stretches for three miles from the Castle to the Deer Park beyond. The views are breath taking.
Castle Ashby gardens are a hidden gem and in all their splendour and tranquillity they are the perfect place to host your event, whether a birthday celebration set in the walled garden, summer drinks in the Italian gardens or in the beautiful Fuchsia house, a woodland wedding in the Arboretum or a classic car event on the ‘Grande Avenue’.
Steeped in history and located just 55 miles north of London and between Cambridge and Oxford, Castle Ashby gardens and walled garden are available to hire on an exclusive basis for events.
