A Victorian castle with woods, lake and garden. The Millennium Gardens are surrounded by a romantic hornbeam cloister walk and include plants exclusive to the demesne and the world’s tallest box hedges. The "Great Telescope" (designed by the third Earl of Rosse and completed in 1845) is located in the grounds.
