Historic Homes & Gardens

The Lake District teams with outdoor and indoor attractions to see and enjoy. For some suggestions about what to see in our beautiful National Park, see our information on Historic Homes & Gardens, Wildlife, Lakes & Landscapes, Villages or Attractions.

Dove Cottage

Poet Laureate William Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage is well preserved, as is Wordsworth House, which is presented in authentic 1700s detail.

Muncaster Castle

Muncaster Castle boasts a ghost or two, wild woodland gardens, and a Hawk & Owl Centre where you can get up close and personal to a hawk on a Hawk Walk.

Hill Top

Meticulously maintained and presented the way Beatrix Potter left it, Hill Top is the Lake District’s most visited literary shrine.


Townend, Cumbria’s famous statesman house, was built in 1626 by Yeoman Browne, and remained in the family until 1943. It is presented much as the family kept it.


For a scenic way to visit Brantwood, home to John Ruskin, writer, artist, and social thinker, why not sail in style on Coniston Water in a restored Victorian gondola?
