We visited Levens Hall with our relative from USA. We enjoyed touring around the main house with the notes given on arrival and the assistance of costumed experts who were dotted around the place! It is an interesting visit. We then enjoyed a lovely walk around the gardens. I really enjoyed the gardens and will definitely return another time for... More

we went to leavens hall on a beautiful sunny day, the garden's were a fantastic place to stroll around sit and relax watch a game of croquette have a chat to the very knowledgeable gardeners and see some of the most beautiful flowers in the area. The topiary garden is a credit to all the people who look after them... More

This interesting historic house is easy to find (it's just off the A6) and there is plenty of parking. As it is so close to Sizergh Castle (NT) we visited both on the same day. They have a good tea room and there is a plant centre by the ticket booth. We went on the tour of the house (like... More

Enjoyed a lovely visit to Levens Hall. The gardens were gorgeous and had an informative tour with the head gardener. The house tour was fascinating and the guides were very informative.A good day out if you are in the area.

A wonderful experience was had by all six of us on a recent visit to Levens Hall. Plenty of space for parking with nice surrounding landscapes. The gentleman at the entry gate was most helpful as he explained all about the place. The gardens are astonishing. The slower i walked the more i could take in. Tree's so skillfully and... More

After seeing photos of the topiary garden we decided to visit. We were not disappointed, the gardens were much bigger than we had expected and had some interesting features with surprises around every corner. The rose garden smelt beautiful. Well worth a visit.

Very interesting house visit and unusual garden; wonderful circular walk in adjacent parkland with black fallow deer and rare breed bagot goats free to roam.

Visited this as part of a group. The gardens are beautifully maintained and they have put a lot of effort into putting in areas of special interest for children. The house is fairly small, so struggled with large numbers, but full of fascinating history and the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. There is a cafe serving home made fare.... More

Levens Hall and garden both have an extraordinary welcoming atmosphere. The Hall is fascinating and it's a pleasure to see a house still lived in by the family who have owned it for so long; so unlike the average National Trust property. Everything is beautifully presented but it doesn't feel sterile. The garden is a great deal more than sensational... More

This was a great family day out for our family. We've three children aged 8-10 and they loved it and would happily have stayed another hour or two. The big thing is the gardens. A wonderful mix of astonishing topiary, flower beds and huge hedges. Through the hedges there are innumerable short cuts and hidden paths to any number of... More
