Very nice gardens with amazing topiary probably the best in the British Isles. Very interesting house steeped in History and still lived in. Lovely people answering lots of questions about house and gardens. A good cafe offering fresh food sensibly priced Even got a play area for the kids.

I recently made my annual visit to these wonderful gardens with stunning topiary. The gardens were completely flooded in the winter and the gardeners deserve our thanks for all the hard work they undertook to have them looking as good as ever.

A long awaited visit to Levens Hall gardens could have been marred by the weather but it wasn't at all! The topiary garden is fabulous and the thrills keep on coming as one wanders through lush areas of immaculately kept borders, pleached lime tunnels and a sweet scented and colourful rose garden. Our enjoyment began well with a delicious lunch... More

Beautiful gardens, exactly what I needed as a break away from my hectic life. So peaceful and full of wildlife and birds. Wandered around the house and met by a lovely lady who explained everything in lots of detail. Everyone was very friendly and the tea and cakes afterwards were just lovely!

Lucky for us, my wife and I can walk from our front door to Levens Hall in less than an hour. The walk itself is most pleasing, initially along a canal path, then over open fields with the Sedgwick cricket grounds in view and eventually through Levens Park. The path through the Park is bordered on both sides by giant... More

The topiary is the highlight of the wonderful gardens. The house is very interesting both historically and decoratively. Helpful and knowledgeable staff added to a very worthwhile visit. The restaurant was busy but the food was very good. The pasty special was very good value for money. Clean toilets and plenty of free parking.

Our first visit to Levans Hall & Gardens. The topiary is quite exquisite each one a work of art. The team of gardeners must be applauded for keeping these living sculptures in tip top condition. There is someting different at every turn. We didn't visit the house as we were short of time en-route home from the Lakes. The tea-room... More

This is a very interesting house well worth visiting. Intriguing history and the house itself is full of delightful pieces, Through military links to Wellington there is a wonderful collection of objects associated with the Duke. Some absolutely stunning interiors, carved wooden panels, intricate Cordovan leather, decorative overmantles.....don't miss it. Then there are the gardens: beautifully planted and wonderfully kept.... More

Just visited these absolutely magnificent gardens where the staff are hard at it clipping all the topiary back into shape. what a job! But what a fantastic result when they are finished. This place is just wonderful and well worth the visit.

We visited this week, and while the topiary was in the process of being trimmed, we still had an amazing time. We can't comment on the house, as we only paid for garden tickets, but this is truly a unique place. We've visited A LOT of gardens around the country and this really is up there - so quirky and...
