‘A Garden…is the Purest of Human Pleasure. It is the Greatest Refreshment to the Spirits of Man’

Francis Bacon (1561-1626)


Walled Garden

July 2021

With brilliant weather forecast for the week, I’ve headed north to the Lake District.

Hutton-in-the Forest is near Penrith. Originally a pele tower, the house has belonged to the same family since 1605. it was remodelled in the late 19th century by Antony Salvin.

The stunning walled garden is divided into different compartments by gravel and grass walks.

Explore the Low Garden with the remains of a cascade. This area is currently being redeveloped.

Don’t miss the 17th century Dovecote near the car park.
