This beautiful garden has plants that do well in the Lake District’s stony soils, damp climate, and stony soils and has Alpine houses, with rock and heather gardens and a walled garden that is known for its herbaceous borders. Thomas Mawson was also involved in the gardens at the end of the 19th century when he enlarged the Walled Garden, which had originally been built-in 1870. There are also national collections of Polystichum ferns, hydrangeas, and astilbes, along with an array of rhododendrons and azaleas.
