We have been coming to the Lakes for almost 20 years but never discovered the beauty of these gardens before. A great afternoon was spent enjoying the excellent plants and views that this attraction offers. What great value. Well done to all the volunteers

Hundreds of flowers and shrubs in a small area, a nice quiet tarn is to be found in the grounds too. Great way to escape the crowds.

Visited on a whim and really enjoyed the beauty and intricacies of the gardens. Despite not being an avid horticulturalist I found these gardens to be quite enchanting. Highly recommended.
