Graythwaite Hall Gardens

The gardens of Graythwaite Hall cover 12 acres and were originally designed by Thomas Mawson of Windermere in 1896. The gardens today remain faithful to his concept, a blend of formal and informal planting set in woodland. Rhododendrons, azaleas, and flowering shrubs provide a riot of colour in springtime. See if you can spot the two huge Douglas firs that were planted around 1830 when they were introduced to England from America. The daffodil field has some lovely maple trees and an area planted with ornamental trees to commemorate family births and marriages. The gardens are open to the public from April to August. Entry is permitted by use of an honesty box system. All monies received goes back into the maintenance of the garden.
