The Rose Garden

Updated: Aug 21

Lickleyhead Castle now has a rose garden! It's actually always been there but was more of a jungle than a garden previously and you would have risked being stung by nettles or being cut by bramble thorns if you wanted to see the flowers. We've retained such features as survived and kept the original layout, but added to the garden substantially and used contrasting stones/paving slabs to highlight divisions and bring out the colour of the roses when they bloom.

While there may have been a different type of garden previously, according to our sources the current layout of the rose garden was by a local man, a Mr. Smith, in the time of Maria Luz de Landa's residence (early-mid twentieth century).
