Enjoy the magnificent gardens at Rydal Hall . . .
The gardens at Rydal Hall were designed by the garden designer, landscape architect and town planner Thomas Hayton Mawson (1861-1933) in 1911. They represent a unique example of Edwardian gardening set in the breath taking landscape of the Lake District. The Italianate terracing includes fine herbaceous borders and lawns set against the imposing architecture of the Hall.
The gardens include an informal woodland garden with ponds leading to the restored Summerhouse overlooking the famous Rydal Falls. Also restored are a 19th century Game Larder and Ice House.
An early 19th century woodland path leads to the Community Vegetable Garden set in the Old Walled Kitchen Garden. It includes an orchard planted with 30 northern varieties of apple dating back to the 1850s and a plethora of flowers and vegetables growing alongside each other.
