Holker Hall and Gardens

Situated near the historic village of Cartmel in the south lakes and only a short distance from the sea, Hollker Hall is a fine neo-Elizabethan mansion whose gardens provide a soft and gentle contrast to the ruggedness of the Lakeland countryside to the north. Discover over 400 years of history inside this beautifully preserved house which has been handed down through generations of the Cavendish family. The gardens contain 25 acres of immaculately kept woodland and formal gardens - a stunningly light and elegant example of Victorian design.
