1. Do a self-guided tour of the All Saints Estate castle and grounds
A visit to All Saint Estate starts as you enter the impressive wrought iron gates and turn into the entrance lined by majestic 130 year old Elm Trees. Once on foot and walking towards the Castle you will pass through the stunning landscaped gardens on your way to the Cellar Door entrance. Before wandering around the Estate, take a minute or two and read about the rich history of the Estate. The Chinese Dormitory, at the rear of the Castle, is one of many significant buildings on the Estate and was the third building to be classified by the Historic Buildings Council. The other two classified buildings are the Castle and the Cheese Tasting Room (formerly the bottling hall and cellar).
You can also take a guided tour of the Estate with one of our knowledgeable staff at 11am Saturday and Sunday mornings throughout the year. Register your interest here or when you visit cellar door.
