There is so much to see in these beautiful gardens. The views are pretty special as well. We have visited may times.

This Horticultural delight is located in the most beautiful setting with Views of the Lakeland mountains including Langdale Pikes in the distance.
The layout of the display is very good & includes a walled garden with interesting species of plants. Lots of beautiful butterflies & bees enjoy this habitation.
Worth a visit.

A real gem of a place one mile off the main road to Ambleside and was featured on the BBC local news last week. All done by volunteers so a donation on entry is requested. We took a leisurely stroll around and even now, as the year draws to a close, there was plenty to see. So many varieties of plants and stunning displays. We will return next year in early summer for another visit.

With some directions in hand, I drove out to see the Gardens, but had some trouble finding my way. Eventually, I got there and all the stress was forgotten . What a beautiful haven in the midst of rather spectacular scenery. this was genuinely one of the highlights of my trip. I highly recommend it.

The guidebook “The Best of Britain” described this garden favourably. That was the reason we went there and we are so pleased that the guidebook highlighted it to us as we were not disappointed.
