Holker Hall & Gardens
Cafe or restaurant
Steeped in history yet always evolving, the award-winning gardens at Holker Hall are a must-see if you’re visiting this part of the Northwest – just a short drive from the central Lake District.
There are 23 acres of gardens to explore, with walks like The Cavendish designed to showcase the highlights – from fountains and topiary to evergreens and wildflower meadows. Stand beneath the 400-year-old Great Lime before wandering round the curious Holker Labyrinth. Along with a huge variety of flowers and exotic plants, the gardens are also famous for their beautiful collection of rare Styracaceae. Each generation of the Cavendish family has left its mark on Holker Hall and Gardens, with the estate never having been bought or sold. Go on a tour of the house before enjoying views of Cumbria’s landscape from the Courtyard Café. You can pick up books on the gardens as well as seasonal plants in the gift shop.
