Firstly we had our packed lunch before heading up to the castle gardens. We picked up the quiz pack at the gate. These are great fun for the kids. Aaron was off along with Jake his friend following the trail around the gardens, finding the answers to the question`s on the sheets.
Firstly the quiz took us to the Ice House. This is a twenty foot well shaped as an igloo. The views of the gardens are fantastic. The igloo sits in the Wilderness part of the garden. Here there is also a very pretty magical waterfall under a little wooden bridge.
The pond area is also a very pretty setting were if you use your imagination you can dream away to fairytale land. Imagining the fairy's and beautiful lake princess. This garden is very much a fantasy and fairytale setting.
