What a lovely place. Beautiful gardens lovely topiary and a great house. Take your time, this is not a place to rush around. There is lots to see and you will see more the slower you go. We had a really relaxing morning and finished it off with a visit to the buttery/tea room. It had a good range of... More

^Visited here today with my husband and seven year old great nephew. We were a little worried as we had not expected to have Daniel and did not think the attraction would be suitable. Well how wrong can you be, the house was really interesting and the gardens are absolutely beautiful. Daniel was given a quiz with questions about the... More

Levens Hall must be one of Cumbria's best kept secrets. You'll pass this place without really noticing it. (I have, for the last 7 years, as I'm a sales rep' & frequent this area). You'll see the brown tourist road sign for "Levens Hall", but you won't know what it is. I only stopped because I caught a glimpse of... More

We visited on a day which started out dull but on entering the gardens the impact of the wonderful yellow antirrhinums made it look as if the sun was shining! The topiary is wonderful and all the garden is well tended. A self guided tour of the house is certainly worth it. A guide is in each room and will... More

Visited Levens Hall yesterday on a beautiful sunny day. The gardens are spectacular and I can't rate them highly enough. However, the reason for this review is to warn others about the frankly bizarre treatment my husband and I received at the Bellingham Buttery. We arrived at around 11.45 and having bought our tickets and found our bearings decided to... More

We had a fantastic day touring the magnificent beautiful Gardens and Topiary - a relaxed stroll around the Gardens was just amazing ! We also visited the House which was fun and loved the friendliness of all the staff. We also had a fresh well prepared snack at the small Restaurant enjoying the sun shine as we sat outside -...

Wow! You walk in here and just feel that its a special place, with a really relaxed feel to it. The house is fairly small so if you are expecting grand then forget it. But the gardens are something really special. Colour, shape, design so go and see it

We visited Levens Hall early in the morning and it is situated in beautiful surroundings (woodlands) and has exquisite gardens. Unfortunately we did not visit the house itself.

I've been to Leven's Hall many many times before, but as ever it never fails to throw up a surprise and this visit was no exception. I took my friend Jane who was on her and Cooper's (Jane's Cousin) annual trip to England from Georgia (USA) They always come to England early summer, Cooper is a big fan of the... More

We had a fantastic visit to Levens Hall - we had heard all about the gardens and they certainly didn't disappoint but the house itself was stunning. Excellent eccles cakes in the cafe and lovely friendly service. Will definitely be going back, hopefully to see the gardens in the sunshine!
