I have visited many great houses, both in Cumbria and elsewhere. Many are magnificent, but not necessarily the sort of place you would want to live in. Levens is different. It is certainly a superb and historic building. But it is a family home too and has a delightfully warm feeling about it. The gardens are just fantastic and feature... More

It is a place which helps anyone to appreciate their heritage. A genuinely English historic home, still lived in and kept perfectly. The staff are very interested in their site and it is obviously loved and cared for by all. The musical instruments are superb. The gardens, topiary, are breathtaking.

If you are him long back from the Lake District, this is a lovely stop along the way. We love touring old houses and this one was certainly not a disappointment. The gardens were so special and I am sure even better in summer. An outside cafe was the perfect end to the short distraction.

They were trimming the topiaries, and we happened to arrive close to the twice a week gardener's tour. No extra cost, and it would have been worth a fee! Lovely place, laid out in 1694. In addition, we toured the home, and there is an amazing amount of treasures to view. We also ate in the Bellingham Buttery restaurant and... More

We couldn't visit the house as we were out walking but we had a lovely walk through the dear park and a very much enjoyed lunch in the garden. Incidentaly dogs are not normally allowed but we asked very nicely! From what we could see the gardens were very well kept and would love to go back and visit properly.... More

Small but beautiful example. Amazing internal decoration and panelling - and brim full of contents unlike some other "shells" I could mention. Loads of information and friendly - and not officious- staff. Information on all the paintings - other HHA house please note!
