Grimsthorpe

A small village three miles north-west of Bourne.  Grimsthorpe Castle, situated about half a mile from the village, is a large country house set in a 3,000 acre estate.

The Castle has been in the Willoughby de Eresby family for 500 years; the family is one of three in England who still fulfil the hereditary office of Lord Chamberlain, the Monarch’s representative at the Palace of Westminster. Although still a private residence, Grimsthorpe Castle is open to the public for a number of days during the spring and summer.
