Castle Hill on the Crane Estate


With 2,100 acres of impeccable landscaping and wild rambles, a 59-room mansion, and breathtaking views of the Great Marsh and Ipswich Bay, Castle Hill is a compelling destination. Visitors can wander the formal gardens, explore the nooks and crannies of the Stuart-style Great House, or descend the Grande Allée, a corridor of rolling lawns that stretches to the sea. Scheduled events including property tours, yoga workshops, and open-air concerts make Castle Hill even more compelling.
