EASTNOR
CASTLE
& ARBORETUM
2016
WELCOME...
... to Eastnor Castle,
the family home where my
brother, George, and I were
brought up and where I now
live with my wife, Lucy, and
daughters Imogen, Isabella,
Nancy, Stella & Minna, Lucy’s
dog, Luna, and my cat,
Midnight.

We have also introduced a Natural Woodland Play Area at
the end of the lake, just off the lakeside walk and close to
the waterfall. It should be well worth the visit.
We are proud to be continuing to display treasures from
Lowther Castle, which shared the same architect as Eastnor.
Items include paintings, silver, furniture and miniatures. As
we are one of the few open houses that welcomes dogs
inside, I expect there will be a variety of well-behaved family
pets to admire as well.
In the Deer Park, we are delighted that Lakefest will be
moving here and holding their event in August. It will be a
family-friendly festival, and we hope it will stay here for
many years.
I very much hope you will enjoy your visit and thank you for
coming to Eastnor. Please let us know what you think in our
Visitors’ Book and on social media.
