Lake District Historic Houses & Gardens

Discover the Lake District Historic Houses & Gardens, nine unique houses set in Cumbria's magnificent landscape. All privately owned and most still much loved family homes. Get a glimpse behind closed doors and discover the legacy left by generations of owners.

Delve into our special offers, events and explore pages and start planning your trip. You could be pleasantly surprised by what you uncover. Each property is unique, some are architectural icons, some have award-winning gardens, but all have an interesting tale or two.

See these houses brought to life with a range of live events and festivals throughout the year. When you have finished exploring, relax in a cosy tearoom and tuck into some homemade food or fresh estate produce.

Award-winning Gardens

From big formal affairs to wild-flower meadows admire the variety in these award-winning gardens and grounds.
