Eastnor Castle, in the dramatic setting of the Malvern Hills and surrounded by a deer park, arboretum and lake, is home to the Hervey-Bathurst family.
Although built in the Norman style, the Castle dates from 1820 when it was built by Earl Somers to demonstrate his political importance and status. The Castle's lavish interiors include medieval armour, fine art and tapestries.
5,000 acres of stunning grounds, woodland and lakeside walks are at visitors disposal along with a maze, children's adventure playground and assault course.
