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.

Acorn Bank Moth Art Installation

1 May - 2 November

An exhibition evoking the past history of Acorn Bank. Using a survey of the moth population in the orchard at Acorn Bank as a starting point, artist Stephen Livingstone uses moths as a metaphor to represent the forgotten people who lived in the house over the centuries, from Jacobean Manor through to 20th century nursing home.
