Outstanding views Temples and a sham Castle. Castle Hill was built in 1730 as the Earl Fortescue's family home in North Devon. The Palladian House in which his descendants the Earl and Countess of Arran are living is set in an 18th century parkland landscape with grass terraces and statues leading down to the river and lakes.

 

To the East side of the house is the Millennium Garden designed by Xa Tollemache a Chelsea Gold Medallist. The large herbaceous borders are edged with box and lavender and an illuminated "topiary" water sculpture was designed and built by Giles Rayner in 2002. From there the path takes you to the formal terraced lawns in front of the house. The eye is then drawn across a small country road by a tree-lined avenue towards the Triumphal Arch built as an eye-catcher and our newly restored temple the Holwell Temple.
