Spring highlight

A host of golden Daffodils

Dora’s field is the best place for a springtime wander and renowned for its display of daffodils.

William Wordsworth planned to build a house on this land in Rydal but, after the early death of his daughter Dora, he planted the area with native daffodils in her memory.
