The Samling Luxury Country Hotel in the Lake District

Ornamental Gardens

Thoughtfully carved out of existing, beautifully worn and water-riven bedrock, our beautiful cascading water gardens run under and around the hotel before dropping down towards the lake. To one side  sits a listed Georgian arbour with long lake views over Windermere. Woven about with paths and bridges these pools are terraced into the slope and a haven for wildlife that visit from our woods – intent on getting into the kitchen gardens that border two sides, with picturesque Beatrix Potter style disregard for gardeners and chefs.
To the West, a simpler fern filled micro valley slices towards the lake – where Wordsworth was inspired to write an ode to the sweet quality of its drinking water rising from natural springs on the higher slopes of Wansfell behind us. This is a be-jungled riot of giant Gunnera, ferns and palm as well as wildflowers that match the giant proportions of their neighbours.
