Visiting with family from Australia

It was a couple of years ago now but they loved the house and especially the gardens. It was a lovely day and we had a picnic in the grounds. Well worth a visit

Fabulous walled gardens to lose yourself in and a perfectly sized house to explore without getting too tired. Friendly informative staff. Join the free garden tour for greater insight. I've passed Levens Hall over the years and can't believe that I've been never been her before. Amazing to think it was hit by the 2014-15 floods.

Took more pictures here than anywhere else on the trip. The topiary gardens were impressive with so many different shapes. Tour of the rooms of the house was very informative given by very friendly docents.

Staff are so helpful. A few of the volunteers took time to assist my disabled elderly mother and explain the history of the house to her while I went into the upstairs rooms that she couldn't get to. The house and gardens are so interesting and a great way to spend a few hours. Each room has laminated fact sheets... More

The gardens although not as big as those of other stately homes are nevertheless a must to visit just to see the amazing topiary which has been done to the... More
