Gresgarth Hall Gardens
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The gardens feature colourful plants, with a predominance of pink, silver-white, and purple blossoms, meant to complement the grey stone of the mansion. A variety of zodiacal signs are created by pebble mosaic. Near the garden terrace is a kitchen garden.
The valley sides are lush with rare and unusual trees and shrubs, with many Japanese varieties. The Oriental theme is continued with a Chinese bridge crossing Artle Beck at the bottom of the valley. In amongst the foliage are scattered sculptures and follies, both classical and modern in style. There are circular walks around a peaceful lake, and colourful planted borders to enjoy.
