The Lakes has some pretty special landscapes, but we can’t forget the gardens here either. Enjoy the new stumpery at Sizergh, see how the garden at Wordsworth House has recovered since it was flooded, or meet our very own Mr McGregor at Beatrix Potter’s original garden at her Lake District home, Hill Top.
On the hunt for a red squirrel, daffodil, bluebell, or simply just to enjoy the birdsong that surrounds us in the spring? The Lake District is waking up after the winter and as the days get longer and warmer, it's the perfect season to step outside.
You don't need to be an expert or a history buff to volunteer for the National Trust. If you've got enthusiasm and a bit of time to spare, we'd love to hear from you at any of the special places we look after in the North West.
