Yurt Cafe Walled Garden

We packed our bags and raided the breakfast boxes for items to save for another day then checked out. We had another in-car picnic breakfast before heading off to Berkeley Castle for which we had pre-booked tickets. We arrived before the castle gates opened so on arrival we walked around the Yurt café walled garden whilst waiting.

Once inside the gates there wasn’t a queue to get into the castle so we decided to visit that before the gardens. It was nice to be able to view it without too many people around. It had been much busier on our previous visit last year.

The sunshine enhanced our enjoyment of the gardens which had a temporary, one-way system in place. I think we got the direction wrong at least once. By the time we had finished in the gardens it was time for lunch. We sat outside in the sunshine where I enjoyed a slice of white chocolate and raspberry cake from the Yurt café.

All too soon it was time to continue our journey home. We invited mum round for an evening so that we could round off the holiday in style; fresh salmon, mini hassleback potatoes, rocket and lemon mayo.

    I would like a shallow pool with floating water lillies and simple fountains here too.

  2. What a super castle – somewhere I have never been. Lovely photos.

      It is :-) We also visited last year when the butterfly house was open and we were able to explore the church.

      I have only posted part of my experience from last year. Now I need to merge the two visits to share the beautiful location :-)
