Called in here recently having completed a lovely walk around the arboretum. Coffee was good, the fruit scone was awful, about two sultanas in it. Absolutely terrible. Change ur supplier. However lovely atmosphere and a nice log fire.

What a beautiful place, the walks are fabulous something for everyone no matter what their fitness level. The Annesley Garden is the real gem at Castlewellan such a beautiful peaceful place to wonder through. A great place to spend the day with all the family.

However bring cash for the Cafe as they don't accept card. In 2018. They don't accept cards. Also, peace maze does not allow dogs, but we brought ours in anyway and it was fine.

We went for a walk around the lake a couple of times. There was benches for you to sit and relax and also places that you could bri g your lunch and sit by the lake and enjoy nature.
