Lake District National Park Things to Do: 245 reviews and 501 photos


This is a wonderful walled garden which has old varieties of flowers. There are also fruit trees and there is a lovely 17th century house that is made of red sandstone .In the herb garden there are loads of medicinal and culinary herbs - never seen so many. There are woodland walks ad a tea room where we had a god cup of tea after exploring.
It looks over the Eden Valley and I thought it is a lovely quiet day out. It belongs to the National Trust.
