The Display House

An exciting development at Holehird in 2017, was the installation of a new display house within the Walled Garden.  The Victorian-style glasshouse, built alongside the east wall, replaces an old greenhouse which was used for propagation and not open to the public.  The new display house has wheelchair access and so will be accessible by all our visitors.

The display house is kept at a minimum temperature of 5 degrees Celsius year-round, enabling plants which would not otherwise thrive in Lake District conditions to be grown.  There is a mixture of permanent planting and seasonally-changing displays, providing interest for visitors throughout the year.
