Greythwaite Hall garden
Greythwaite Hall Garden

Graythwaite Hall Gardens were planted about 1890 by Thomas Mawson, (see Brockhole) The resultant Arts and Crafts style design, scattered with sundials by architect Dan Gibson, is a delight in spring when the rhododendrons, azaleas and flowering shrubs are in glorious bloom.

There is a Dutch Garden, yew hedges and topiary, and a formal rose garden as well. Best in: spring.

The 17th-century country house of Graythwaite Hall is not open to the public, but the woods surrounding the Graythwaite estate were a favourite walking spot for William Wordsworth, and provide the backdrop for the Beatrix Potter story, 'The Fairy Caravan'.
