Located in the peaceful surroundings of the Herefordshire countryside and sitting at the foot of the beautiful and historic Malvern Hills, Eastnor Castle sits in 100 acres of grounds and is surrounded by a 5,000 acre estate.

See the magnificent State rooms as you are immersed in the fascinating world of Eastnor and its family.

In the grounds you will find an arboretum containing the finest collection of Cedars in Britain with tree trails and rope swings. There are several play areas and an established yew maze which was planted in 1994.

Eastnor Castle fulfils other roles as an exclusive-use wedding venue, corporate team building venue, and private party venue, as well as a venue for product launches and location filming.

Dogs are very welcome, both inside the house and around the grounds.
