Whilst not receiving the publicity or popularity of other Lake District properties, Levens Hall is an utter delight. The Hall itself is small but beautifully maintained with a wealth of Elizabethan features & history, and the volunteer guides are very knowledgeable and interesting. Make sure...More

If you want a walk through lovely countryside this is for you. A public footpath through Levens Hall deer park takes you along the river where the trees are spectacular and through farmland where, if you're lucky, you can see deer. You can make it...More

Just dropped in for a quick brew and a cake after a previous excellent experience. But we were bewildered by the really odd conduct of the cafe server. We've never been served by someone who never spoke to us at all, just pointed at cups...More

We used Levens Hall as a stopping point on our journey to the Lakes District. What a splendid surprise! Firstly we went to the tea room where the Mars cake was out of this world! We then ventured into the house itself and were greeted...More

Enjoyed a lovely stroll through the gardens, and although although some plants were suffering in the heat, the recent rains should put them back in fine form. I only had a cup of tea from the cafe, but the baking all looked good too (hard...More

You can buy tickets anytime you like online. They don't need to be printed and so showing them to our ticket kiosk attendant on your phone is totally fine. We look forward to seeing you soon
