A magical space to be in.

The mid-19th-century parkland at Leys Castle is now farmed but retains a few original plantings. Woodland of varying ages is a distinctive feature of the estate.

There are early-20th-century formal grass terraces and an arboretum (botanical garden devoted to trees) with a collection of yews and cypresses.
The structure of the designed landscape was laid out between 1833 and 1868. Sir Francis Walker added the terraces and the arboretum in the early-20th century.

The estate is now farmed and as well as the pegigree herd of Highland cattle, woodland, forestry, arable and a separate beef herd are part of the agricultural set up.
