The Garden:
In which ever direction you look at Higher Lee, your eyes are met with the breathtaking beauty - the exquisite 17th-century façade, the beautifully maintained formal gardens, the willow maze, the gently bubbling stream.

For children, the 2 acre garden enclosed by dry stone walls offers a self-contained paradise to explore (younger guests should be supervised at the stream). Beyond the garden, the majestic beauty of the Trough of Bowland lies waiting to be discovered. And if that isn't enough, Lake Windermere is less than an hour's drive away.
