Castle Howard is a stunning stately home only 5 miles from Spring Cottage. It’s still home to the Howard family. It sits in the self-named Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The rose garden, the grounds and the fabulous children’s adventure playground are all as equally amazing as the house itself. There’s road train that runs from the entrance passed the house and down to the lake. And for my children, that’s the best bit! You choose!
