Gardens in the Lake District

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.
