Lowther Castle & Gardens image

Lowther Castle sits at the heart of a 75,000 acre agricultural estate in Cumbria's Lake District National Park, within a 3,000 acre medieval deer park originally laid out by the Lowther family in the 16th and 17th centuries

A major restoration project started 4 years ago and has uncovered a stunning selection of garden remains and vistas - the Pate d'Oie, Rock Gardens, Pinetum, 17th C. yew avenue, stunning views from the escarpment, and so much more. Atmospheric and enchanting, these gardens encourage reflection on the stunning past of this unique place.

£8 Adult, £24 Annual Membership.

Accompanied children under 16 free, well behaved dogs on leads are welcome.

The Cafe and Shop are open every day from 10am to 4.00 pm, situated in the stable courtyard, free access and parking.
