The romantic garden at the end of winding lanes, surrounding the 17th century pink brick castle on a peninsula on the River Lynher.

The house is approached up a straight tunnel-like drive lined with daffodils which are then followed by clouds of cow parsley.


Old apple trees with bulbs, woodland garden with fritillaries, camellias and rhododendrons.

This garden also has an extraordinary 1960s shell house on edge of the formal garden.

Ince Castle is three miles from Saltash in Cornwall. It is not a castle in the conventional sense, but a manor house built of brick.

It was built in 1642, at the start of the English Civil War and was captured in 1646.
