These gardens are well maintained and labelling of plants is very good. They are reasonably large and you can spend quite a lot of time wandering around. They do ask for a donation of £4 per person which you can gift aid. Well worth a visit.

This Garden is the showpiece of the Lakeland Horticultural Society and is maintained almost entirely by a good number of volunteers.

Fabulous range of plants, great views and lovely stroll to tarn. Great place to relax, buy the odd plant and get good ideas for your own garden.

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

Having a spare couple of hours in the afternoon I thought I would visit the gardens after reading mainly positive reviews on tripadvisor. There is ample parking and it's free, a rarity in Windemere.

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.
