Brockhole Gardens
Brockhole Garden
Brockhole is an ornamental terraced garden nestled at the foot of the Langdale Pikes. A wildflower meadow and woodland belie the carefully planted schemes of roses, borders, shrubbery, and rock plants.

Good planning means there is always something in bloom. Brockhole was planted in the early 20th century by Thomas Mawson, and it is listed by English Heritage as being of special historic importance.

The garden is owned by the Lake District National Park, and it sits beside the park visitor centre just outside Windermere. Best in: anytime but winter.
