The Gardens

The 12 acre hillside gardens at Holehird include a great variety of planting - specimen trees and shrubs, extensive rock and heather gardens, a walled garden, alpine houses and herbaceous borders.



The Lakeland Horticultural Society holds four National Collections; Astilbe, Meconopsis, Daboecia and Polystichum Ferns. 

"The Lakeland Horticultural Society's garden at Holehird is inspiring. Within a truly wonderful setting, the garden has been brilliantly cultivated by its members."
