Welcome to Upton Castle Gardens

A little logistics

Directions and Parking

Free parking onsite.

Follow the brown signs from the A477 through the village of Cosheston.

Google or Apple maps may take you via other routes along extremely narrow roads from Naish and Milton, so we reccommend checking your route to avoid Paskeston road and Blackberry Lane.

Follow directions to Upton Castle Gardens to arrive at our carpark, on the right as you approach.

Sign to Upton Castle Car Park


The gardens are partially accessible. While most areas are easily reached and wheelchair friendly, some parts may pose accessibility challenges. There are both narrow and steep sections particularly in the upper woodland nearer the car park. Boot scooters are not suitable for the uneven gravel and grassy paths. There are also steps down into the rose garden so this is not accessible to wheelchairs.

Blue badge holders can speak to member of staff occupying the hut about disabled parking closer to the Castle to improve accessibility on the upper steeper sections of the gardens. People do manage with a push wheelchair in the immediate surrounds to the castle.

We are looking to produce a map with step-free routes around the gardens before we reopen. If you have accessibility requirements please ask on arrival or at the cafe for the best route to get around. Or get in touch and we will help you get the best out of your visit.
