Explore the enchanted forest at Acorn Bank

Visitors at Acorn Bank Garden, Cumbria

Acorn Bank in Cumbria is best known for its collection of herbs and traditional fruit orchards.

Explore a little further and you might find something straight out of a fairy tale – hidden doors, a hollow tree and a wild play area, so kids can have a real adventure.

‘My favourite enchanted forest is Acorn Bank, Cumbria,’ says ranger Jo Day. ‘Pixie houses can be found in the roots of the trees and little boats are moored up on the pond.’
