The gardens at Lowther Castle have re-opened once again from 10am-5pm.

The 130 acres of gardens including the Great Yew Avenue, Ancient Apple Orchards, Summerhouses, the Gardens in the Castle Ruins, the Tapestry Gardens and the Western Terrace with views over the Lowther Valley and Lake District fells are all looking at their very best.

New for this summer is The Rose Garden. The amazing design by international Garden Designer Dan Pearson is based on the shape of a rose and inspired by the Sleeping Beauty story. Visitors will be able to wander the network of newly-laid paths, admire over 2,000 roses and perennials and enjoy the fountain which has been restored to its former glory – after 80 years of silence.

A simple takeaway food and drink offer is available from the Courtyard café and the frequently cleaned loos are open daily too. The Story of Lowther Exhibition, Adventure Playground and Afternoon Tea remain suspended.
