Gorgeous gardens and lovely sea views. Fascinating castle to explore for free and a great little outdoor cafe. Wonderful place to enjoy a generous cup of tea or an ice cream. Often come here when visiting relatives n Weymouth.

Beautiful gardens and a wonderful ruined castle. Went there with teh kids. Didn't stay long, but as it cost nothing and we were off to Portland that didn't matter. There's a cafe, but we didn't go to it. Good views and some good information boards...More

We use this place regularly. Can't beat the service. The gardens are beautiful, and the Tudor castle ruins very interesting. Try for yourself

Stopped off while walking the Roswell Trail. Baking hot day. Sat in the lovely manicured gardens and had a light lunch. Nice food and lovely staff and great view too. Will definitely visit again.

This can be found on the coastal route set in its own gardens. The views of the bay and the ruins are well worth a visit. Great place for a picnic and there is a cafe on site which is very reasonably priced.
