Saltmarshe Castle Park is located in peaceful and breath-taking woodland settings, boasting fabulous south facing views over the Bromyard Downs and the Malvern Hills, this astonishing park has been created in the grounds of Saltmarshe Castle, a former country house and estate first owned by the Higginson family and then through the generations to the Barnaby family in 1946. Although the Castle itself was demolished many years ago, parts of the outer walls and turrets still remain, together with various outbuildings, stables, ice house and cider wheel, making this park a unique place to live.
To the west lies the Border region of Wales, famous for its black and white villages. Within the local surroundings of this gorgeous and historic park you can find a wide range of farms, many of them selling locally grown fresh produce and ingredients, as well as some of the most amazing garden centres, family restaurants with homemade food and handcraft gift shops.
