A stunning Grade II listed Castle set within around 27 acres of grounds.
Wartnaby Castle occupies a superb, elevated position and the principal house is believed to date from the early Victorian period. The castle is constructed of striking castellated elevations and was built in the style of a Highland castle, with a roofline accentuated by the castellations and a hexagonal turret. The castle stands in attractive formal gardens and is protected on all sides by mature woodland. The main drive leads through a lime avenue to the castle and also the gardeners cottage.
