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.

A garden for every season at Sizergh

Winter is here at Sizergh, frost sits on the winter kale in the Kitchen Garden. The brightly coloured cornus stems sing out from the lakeside and can be seen from the driveway approach.
