We went looked at the house and took so long we had to go back next day to see the garden! Just as well we are HHA members. The gardens are distinct different and special because of this, the house is not obviously lived in or around as say Holker, it is more a show piece but it is interesting... More

Thank you for your recent review of Levens Hall. As the owner of Levens I was slightly taken a back by your comment about the house not feeling lived in. We make a lot of effort to give our visitors the impression that this is a family home, mainly by having a hands on approach but also by providing as... More

The gardens were exceptional. So vast and different with every turn of the path. So many little paths leading off to separate sections it's a splendour covering it all. The house inside had some wonderful artefacts steeped in deep history and the wood carvings along the walls were exceptional with all it's very fine detail. Levens hall unfortunately looses a...

We spent two hours walking around the gardens here and absolutely loved it. The topiary gardens were just wonderful. We didn't visit the house.

The grown ups get time to enjoy the surroundings as the children get activity sheets to complete - one for inside the house and one for outside.

The topiary in this garden is truly amazing! A guided walk with one of the young gardeners was well worth the time.It was interesting to hear the history of the garden. It was a beautiful day so we've saved the Hall for another visit. They feed he chickens in the car park at 4 ,much to delight of the children... More

The hall, home of the Bagot family, is amazing. The carvings above the mantles are truly great work. Be sure to see the model of The HMS Hotspur , built with a penknife and given to Captain Percy. No photos are allowed in the hall and that is truly a bad thing. the topiary gardens are breathtaking and unequaled. Lunch... More

Visited yesterday the house is interesting but not worth a second view. The gardens are another thing altogether, we had the guided tour by a very knowledgeable young gardener. The times of tours are at the box office but ours was at 2 pm and lasted about 50 mins. The topiary which are approx 300 years old are truly amazing.... More

Levens Hall is a lovely little place with beautiful gardens and a little train ride for children which was cute. The cafe is nice, very limited in what it offers but supplies all the basics which is all that's necessary and the seating in a little garden/courtyard makes it a lovely spot to have coffee.
