My husband and I visited Holehird Gardens in early October and although a lot of the flowers were 'past' their best we had a wonderful few hours walking round. Lovely place to visit.

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.
