Gorgeous little place in the grounds of Stobo Castle. But why has nobody mentioned that the garden is, in fact, private land and reserved for the use of guests at the Stobo Castle Spa? I was so embarrassed when a lovely gent mowing the grass...More

Such a beautiful garden to visit in any weather. Lovely nooks and crannies to sit and appreciate the beauty of nature. A tranquil place to relax and take a leisurely stroll. If you visit Stobo Castle it's a must! Highly recommend.

First visit here despite it being our fifth stay at the castle and did not disappoint. Only a few minutes walk away from the main building. Slight downhill approach but safe enough to walk through, with signs available for walking with caution at rougher terrains.

I think that the Japanese Gardens are for the guests of Stobo Castle. I am not aware that one can visit them separately. It may be best to contact Stobo Castle to ask.
