The walled garden (under separate ownership – www.egglestonhallgardens.co.uk) specialises in rare and unusual species with an emphasis on hardy herbaceous stock, which thrive in the climate of the northern dales. The surrounding wall is home to a variety of fruit trees and an alphabetical apple walk has recently been planted. The ruins of the old village church can be visited with some fine stone carving.

The paths are mainly gravel but wheelchair visitors are very welcome. Dogs on leads can also enter the gardens.

There is a large sales area as well as wonderful borders, glasshouses and mature trees.

Opening Hours: The walled garden is open daily including Mondays except Christmas, Boxing & New Year’s Day.

Admission: Adults £2.50 : Under 18s free : Free Admission to the Nursery
