Delightful garden renowned for its herbs and fruit orchards
Best known for its comprehensive herb collection and traditional fruit orchards, Acorn Bank is a tranquil haven with a fascinating industrial past. Indulge yourself at the tea-room, where culinary herbs and fruit from the garden are used daily in soups, salads and puddings.
Wander along the Crowdundle Beck to the partially restored watermill, enjoying wildlife in the woods on the way, and discover more about the history of gypsum mining on the estate. Enjoy the views across the Eden Valley to the Lake District from the magnificent backdrop of the sandstone house.
For the first time visit the newly opened ground floor of Acorn Bank house.
The woodland at Acorn Bank has been transformed with hundreds of woollen birds, leaves, bugs and flowers. Schools, groups, organizations and individuals have taken part to make fantastic woollen artworks that are hanging in the trees. It's not too late to get involved as the exhibition will continue until the end of the season.
