Holehird Gardens is an extensive 10-acre site located near Windermere, Cumbria, England. It is the home of the Lakeland Horticultural Society. The garden consists of a large variety of plants, particularly those suited to the local climate with its high rainfall. It is made up of extensive rock and heather gardens, alpine houses, and a walled garden which is of particular interest for its herbaceous borders. It was once voted by BBC gardeners to be one of the nation's favourite gardens.

Beautiful hilled gardens, perfect for an afternoon walk. Recommended donation £5. Kids had a little pack to complete and they loved exploring and looking for little facts. Hidden gem
A wonderful find, a gardeners garden! Something for every garden, big or small. Also it wasn’t too big enabling us to see everything, nothing was exorbitant and the staff (all wonderful volunteers) were so very nice and helpful.
I think this is the most beautiful gardens I have ever visited in 70 years. The range of plants they cultivate is amazing It's s credit to the volunteers and all who maintain the gardens. Not a venue for youngsters. G. Watson on the 20th of May 2018.
Beautiful & Tranquil gardens! If you like gardens, flowers, the great outdoors, serenity & tranquility then these are a must see place. There is no entrance fee so it's free, plenty of parking available and there is a visitor information centre right inside the garden. Absolutely lovely place.
A free entry garden and well worth a visit. Lovely place to drive or walk to. Cafe on site but we didn't have time to call in. We'll definitely go again next visit to the Lakes.
Holehird is a very special garden with some incredible views of the Lakes. I like to visit every few weeks to see the changes. Holehird is a joy all year round!
A lovely peaceful garden lots to see at any time of year. No cafe just a drinks machine. So good excuse for a picnic. Plant sales.
Simply wonderful unstructured gardens with a view across the valley to Lake Windermere. Gardens are tended by volunteers. Have posted a picture of a bank of wild English daffodils, "Fluttering and dancing in the breeze"
Beautiful laid out gardens. Lovely and peaceful. Not much in flower due to time of year but can imagine it will be stunning in a few weeks
Holehird is a beautiful, peaceful scenic place to enjoy for hour or so. It is run by volunteers who keep the place looking lovely. Not only do you have the grounds and gardens to admire, but you can see the wonderful Lake District mountains from the grounds.
Beautiful gardens. Very friendly volunteers.
Beautiful gardens. Many thanks to all the volunteers who make this such a pleasant visit.
Without doubt if not the best a second to none enchanting, peaceful and relaxing experience of beautiful well maintained garden. The staff and carers are welcoming and most helpful especially with their knowledge of fauna. A credit to all associated with Holehird Gardens.
Lovely peaceful garden at any time of the year. The gardens are maintained mostly by volunteers.
Lovely garden and greenhouses, well kept and with good views across the valley.
Best garden I have found in the UK. A perfect mix of areas and all set in the stunning Lakeland surroundings.
Excellent gardens and open all year. Run by volunteers who do an excellent job keeping the gardens stocked and tidy. Super value for money.
