Lowther has it all. Beautiful courtyard with plenty of picnic tables, lovely cafe and shop. Interesting ruins with gardens developed within the wall, lots of space to run, beautifully alleys, flowers, woodland areas. And then there is the lost castle, easily in my top 5 play areas in the country and I have visited a lot of play areas. It's fantastic for adults and children alike. A proper place for role play and fun to combine to create a magical experience.
