Quarry Garden with ravines, pinnacles and sheer rock faces inspired by the quarries of Sicily. The Jacobean mansion ruins of the Castle are sure to impress. Climb right to the top of the tower for spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. Belsay Hall itself is a Greek Revival villa centred around the amazing central two-storey ‘Pillar Hall’.
